West Berkeley Walking Tour
Saturday, March 2, 2013 from 9:30 AM to 1:00 PM (PST)
Did you know that West Berkeley is home to an urban farm with goats, a world-famous bread company and iconic green businesses? Take a tour of these memorable places as you get to know West Berkeley -- without a car!
The West Berkeley Neighborhood Walk and Asset Mapping Project will take place on Saturday March 2nd, from 9:30-1 pm. It is sponsored by the Community Engagement working group of the Berkeley Climate Action Coalition, working on reducing greenhouse gases by 80% by 2050.
About the Neighborhood Walk and Asset Mapping Project: We think that West Berkeley is top-notch and want to promote the neighborhood’s assets! The goal of the Neighborhood Asset Mapping Project is to identify local resources, highlighting local businesses, organizations, skills, and public spaces that are within close walking and biking distance in order to reduce a reliance on driving and support local businesses. With an estimated 30% of all car trips are two miles or less, we can make a difference locally.
Join us, as we:
Meet for free coffee and snacks at the Ecology Center (2530 San Pablo Ave), and then walk around the neighborhood to various businesses and other neighborhood jewels that make the neighborhood a sustainable place to live. Stops will include Ecohome Improvement, the Green Faerie Farm (with goats!) and Metro Lighting.
End with a community gathering, with free lunch. During the gathering we will highlight important neighborhood and community resources available for further neighborhood engagement, including the NextDoor.com website, the Buy Local Berkeley directory of local businesses and emergency preparedness resources.
