New Year’s greetings from the POCSHN team !
We hope that each of your respective transitions into 2022 has been smooth, restorative, and easeful.
We are excited to announce that we will be hosting our next Introductory Orientation to POCSHN on Saturday, January 29th at 10:30am PST
We will be joined by eri oura (they/them), a former member of Liberated 23rd Avenue. They will be sharing their experience as a founding member of the hybrid, cooperative housing-commercial space as well as answering any questions that arise during the gathering.
Come listen, learn, and vision with us. We look forward to seeing you there!
** Please note that this event will be taking place online and is for self-identified BIPOC folx only. We appreciate your continued respect and support of BIPOC spaces **
more about eri oura: Hailing from the island of Oʻahu, Hawaiʻi, eri is a magical queer, gender nonconforming person who has been learning to flow with the currents of the local California communities when they moved here in 2013. As a descendant of 1st and 2nd generation Japanese immigrants in Hawaiʻi, eri’s passion for justice is deeply rooted in aloha ʻāina (love for the land).
more about pocshn: The People of Color Sustainable Housing Network (POCSHN) is a resource network for people of color building intentional, healthy, collective and affordable housing communities in the Bay Area and beyond. We are committed to creating an entire ecosystem of POC-centered co-housing, cooperative housing, and intentional communities that are ecologically, emotionally, spiritually and culturally regenerative spaces.
I am in the North Berkeley, not far from the Whole Foods on Gilman. I have been thinking a lot about small ways to begin to move towards self-sufficiency and sustainability. We have a decent sized yard, enough for a nice garden and gardening is one of those practices that are easy to implement. I would love for this garden to be a regular community practice/ project. If anyone is in the area and interested in gardening together let me know. If there is interest I will schedule a meet-up/ work day and we will get growing!
