East Oakland Homo Homestead Bike Tour

**update** thanks to all who came out today! if you have not yet checked out the unique and queertastic homohomestead farm tours led by Joolie Geldner then be sure to catch the next one!

East Oakland Homo Homestead Bike Tour

This Sunday all are invited to an open house at my humble lil' farm at noon and then onto the good folks at SOL. Celebrating the 1 year anniversary here at the "Elephant House." Brought to the Bay Gays by the fabulous Joolie Geldner.

Sunday, August 1st
Noon to 3pm
RSVP! to gurlshare@gmail.com And i will send you the addresses

Come and check out what the homos are doing in our own back yards. The East Oakland Tour will highlight queers collectively and community organizing for social and environmental justice as well as a pretty great look at what a couple of gays can do at their homes in very little time. Please make sure to bring your own bike, lock and helmet!

Meeting at the Elephant House @ Noon SHARP!
We begin at a whimsical spot where we will nibble on fermented homemade goodies, while being shocked and inspired by what queers can do with an Oakland back yard. The Elephant House has been putting in raised beds, rain barrels, chickens, bees, upside down planters, and more at their house. We may be helping them start an herb spiral as well!

SOL: Meeting at 1:30
Sustaining Ourselves Locally is a collective that is transforming an urban space into a center for sustainable living. Sol continues to revitalize their site, formerly a vacant lot, by cleaning out garbage, nourishing the soils, and planting fruit trees and vegetables, reroute their water into garden greywater treatment, and to design on-site environmental education programs. By growing organic food, conserving and recycling resources, and organizing community events and workshops, they are exploring ways to make the city more healthy and liveable for all its inhabitants.


Homo Homestead is an attempt to connect queers to scheme with and spread the deviant homosexual love of all things "homey." In the sense that home is where our love is, where our food is, where our community is and where our visions are.
