Cohen Bray House
Historic Oakland House in the heart of the Fruitvale District

Our 133 year old garden is now being turned into a teaching garden for local schools in our Fruitvale neighborhood. We are creating permaculture beds that will last for years.

It is a lovely 1/2 acre garden in the middle of the city. A lovely place to hang out, get dirt under your fingernails and meet people while you help create our garden
