Rejuvenation

big daddy garden

Big Daddy’s Complete Rejuvenating Community Garden sits astride the Emeryville line just north of 580 on Peralta Street at Macarthur. It’s a nice spot to look at the harmony between Oakland’s land and its history. There are the hills; here are the works of the city; beneath all is the same old soil, ready to bloom for us under the care and energy of visionaries.
