What is Sunday Streets?

Sunday Streets (also called “Open Streets”) closes streets to automobile traffic for a day so that people may use the space for other physical and social activities. The streets become parks as people replace car traffic. People walk, bike, skate and dance and play. Everyone from businesses and community organizations to musicians and artists use the space creatively, engaging the public and providing spontaneity and discovery.

Art Show + SALE @ SGG June 10th 5-7pm
A self-described Francophile, William Ulrich’s Poèmes en Verre (or “Poems in Glass”) evoke the grandeur and romanticism of the Belle Epoque in Paris, France. By incorporating antique frames into his work, Ulrich immediately recalls a by-gone era-a theme that is further cemented by his use of vintage photographs and iconography within his stained glass panels. A marriage of patina and age, his work truly is vintage contemporary. Join us on Friday, June 10th from 5-7pm to meet the artist and experience his work on display
Summer Fruit Tree Pruning Class
This class will teach you how to follow up on your winter pruning and to prune for less reactive growth then you might get from winter pruning. In a large Berkeley garden with over 20 different fruit trees to practice on, we will cover which varieties do well in the area, purchasing good trees, pruning in youth, on-going pruning, and natural approaches to common disease and insect issues. Our goal will be to gain confidence in our ability to take care of productive, healthy, and aesthetically pleasing trees. The class will be tailored to the interests of the participants, and we will cover as many types of trees as we have time and interest in. These could include: pears, apples, apricots, plums, citrus, persimmons, figs, asian pears, cherries, peaches, and mulberries. Instructor: Sequoiah Wachenheim started tending vegetables in the Bay Area at age 6 and hasn’t stopped yet! She has been sole proprietor of Earthly Arts, a consulting landscape design business for the last 15 years, and is extremely passionate about growing her own food. Cost: $40 Location: Backyard in Berkeley, address will be given out to class particicpants.

ART FOR PRAYER AND PEACE: A BRIDGE TO ONENESS Aimee Golant
ART FOR PRAYER AND PEACE: A BRIDGE TO ONENESS with Aimee Golant Sunday, June 26 3:00 - 4:00pm Aimee Golant will be speaking about an amazing project she is in the midst of creating called Art for Prayer and Peace: A Bridge to Oneness. This interactive and evocative exhibit has, according to His Holiness the Dalai Lama, the "potential for contributing to religious harmony and peace."    Aimee was inspired by her experience, through travel and study, of the universality of diverse religious concepts. This universality is found in shared symbols, imagery and sound.Aimee embarked on a journey to express these shared links and commonality between religions and cultures through art and ritual objects.    She will discuss her greater vision for the ritual objects that honor this connection. Some of the pieces from the collection will be on display at the event, including the Torah and it's 'Oneness' accouterments. Art for Prayer and Peace is endorsed by both His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Pope Francis.    Come learn about this amazing project as it unfolds   Aimee Golant Foundation of Peace: Aimee's Artistic Beginning
