Homo Homestead Berkeley Bike Tour - May 23rd!

Map by giorgio
Sunday, May 23rd:  Noon - 5pm 

Tour is FULL! Thanks for all the love - check out the next HH tour in SF

Come join us on the first East Bay HH Tour!
Ahhh, the land seems to spread a little greener and wider in the East Bay - which just means even more opportunities for creative, fantastic and fabulous Queer DIY gardens, green projects, urban husbandry, witchy kitchens, bubbling ferments and much more.

We are giving out the address' and locations of tour spots so that anyone who falls behind, can't make the whole tour, or would rather not bike to the spots can join in at any time.  Of course, posting these  locations is NOT an invitation to stop by these homes anytime outside of this tour.  ***Please check each location's description for its wheelchair accessibility.  Remember to bring a helmet, lock, sunblock, water, water, water, snacks and anything else you may need.

Noon SHARP!!
Fairview House:  1820 Fairview St @ MLK - near Ashby BART
This cooperative style home has been around for awhile and their amazing backyard gardens have been through many changes.  Come check out their upcycled, scrap wood and metal chicken coop, their spiral garden and more amazingness. ** No stairs to garden, patio is mostly concrete, garden paths are grassy or wood chipped.

1:30pm: Green Faerie Farm, 1120 Bancroft Way near San Pablo
This gem has been around for 15 years!  Tucked away in West Berkeley are milking goats, chickens, gardens, rabbits, an urban dairy and more.  The goats gave birth a little while ago so some check out the cute little kids! ***  Wheelchairs can make it all the way back to the goat pen!

3:00pm: Tanya's House, 2012 10th St, btwn University&Allston
Another innovative collective style home.  We will get to sip some home brewed cherry wine and sample this year's olives in their curing process, while taking a tour of the rainwater catchment daisy chain system and the rain garden orchard. **The ground is all flat, some of the paths are over grown and there are a couple of stairs into the house, that is not wheelchair accessible.

Please RSVP!! Space is limited!!
