Savoring Spring! Potlucks April 28th

Gatherings take place on Sunday, April 28th – specific locations, timing and themes are listed below with links to the appropriate signups.  Pick whichever one appeals and reserve your place ASAP – they’re quite limited at some of the spots.

Save Berkeley Public Schools’ Garden & Cooking Programs!

Funds for Berkeley schools’ food and nutrition programs are being cut, and concerned parties from the community and school district are banding together to try to find a long-term solution to the funding issue.
