I want
in Oakland.
Kristy Hilands

We’re excited to let you know that over the past couple of months, we've been working hard to solidify the form and mission of kitLAB - a new maker-type space, located at 5447 Telegraph Avenue in Oakland, near Temescal. kitLAB will be a hub for budding and experienced artists, engineers, educators, activists, creative changemakers, and local community members to make tools, kits and artworks to share and evolve together. Working in collaboration with the East Bay Community Space, kitLAB’s mission will be to resource and develop people’s innate abilities into skills for creating ever more complex, elegant and useful works to offer back to the community.

If you’d like to learn more about our mission and vision, and follow our progress in the coming months as we work toward our opening in late-fall, we encourage you to take a look at our evolving kitLAB website - www.kitlab.org/. We also invite you to follow us on our kitLAB Facebook page - www.facebook.com/thekitlab/?fr...!

Great Post thank you, I recently saw this post because I'm venturing to start a Coffee pop up at very grass roots level. All these Ideas are great, but it boils down to. Going to the City of Oakland Health department and getting a Pop up Permitt. Would love more feed back Thanks

"After all, in an era of overwhelming need for urban infrastructure improvements, trees offer cities some of the best bang for their buck. Trees remove carbon dioxide, filter air pollution, and produce oxygen. They absorb rainwater, UV radiation, and noise. They slow down traffic, improve property values, and reduce human stress and mental fatigue. And they provide shade, which means we have to use less energy to cool down."

Construction of Oakland’s first protected bike lanes are now a reality between downtown and 29th Street, and volunteers are needed to hand out good parking awards to drivers and educate people bicycling about new curbside bike lanes. All help is appreciated, even for partial shifts. Sign up here - bikeeastbay.org/telegraph-signup
