Join us for weeding and whacking off…in Jingletown…

Neighbors & friends,

Sunday 1/20, 10-2p.

Monday 1/21, 10-2p.

To celebrate Martin Luther King National Day of Service Monday 1/21/13, we will be having a Environmental Stewardship project by planting trees (finally) at the Art Wall & Garden. We have purchased 2 Trident Maples & 2 Aristocrat Pears from Urban Releaf.

There is lots of weeding and prep work to be done. Weeds need to be pulled, dead plants removed, overgrown plants trimmed and some plants will need to be moved to make room for the trees.

Tree wells will need to be dug. There was a suggestion of renting a a fence post auger to help with the tree well digging.

Since there is so much work, I am proposing breaking it into two days.

Two days will also give people a choice of days if they have holiday plans.

Please feel free to bring kids out, some schools give credit for community service and we can sign any school forms. We may get a visit from Mayor Quan and we will invite our new Councilperson Noel Gallo.

Please pass this email on to your building email list.

Question? I can be contacted at the email below.


Urban Legend Cellars comes out with Jingletown Wine…


Neighbors and wine lovers,Urban Legend Cellars here in Oakland has produced a new wine named after our neighborhood, Jingletown. It is a blend of : Lodi Grenache, Lodi Syrah, Carneos Pino NoirOwners and winemasters Steve & Marilee Shaffer sent us this message; “Each year we select an Oakland neighborhood and ask “If this neighborhood were a wine what would it taste like?”  Jingletown to me (us) is a vibrant, lighthearted but earnest. Always putting a positive and creative spin on the world around.”

Gracing the unusually shaped bottle will be the IMA Lizard mural and five murals from our Art Wall; Bill Silveira’s ‘Oakland Riveria’, Kim Larson’s ‘Virgin De Guadalupe’, Carlos Jahen’s ‘Neighborhood Dog’ tribute, Saundra Warren’s ‘Community Tree, and pictured is Russ Osterweil’s Earth Day Photo’s,

Jingletown residents will receive a 10% discount on wine purchases. To find and visit Urban Legend Cellars here is their website link,

We are working on having a tasting here in the neighborhood. We will keep you posted.
