About Jingletown:
Jingletown acquired its name at the turn of the century when Portuguese cannery workers whose earnings would “jingle” in their pockets at the end of the day as they walked home from the factories in the area, signifying prosperity. As time went on the neighborhood went into disuse, but in the early 1980’s artists realized the potential and converted many of the neglected warehouses into functioning live/work spaces. It is now a thriving artist community and one of the fastest growing arts district in the Bay Area. In a time when our neighborhood has been changing dramatically, the goal of the Jingletown Arts and Business Community is to heighten awareness about the rich and diverse population of working and exhibiting artists and the creative opportunities in the Jingletown Arts District. For a complete listing of Jingletown artists, businesses and upcoming events in the area, please visit our website: www.jingletown.org

Lets all show up and show our city what we do.

We are in need of people with trucks that can help haul collected debris to the dumpsters.
Depending on how many neighbors show up; we would like to clean plant debris along 29th Ave, Clean trash in the Public Shore rocks, Clean up dog ‘poo’, trash and sweep behind the White Elephant, Clean under the freeway and of course pick up trash along all the streets here. We will have some gloves and tools but you may want to bring your own.
For those who don’t want to do much walking, we will need help weeding and replacing the fence at the Art Wall, help with sign in, tool inventory and setting up for the bbq after the clean. Pre Earth Day, we could use shoppers to get bbq items. I have one BBQ can anyone else bring one?

Exchange Studio neighbors, let’s not forget cleaning along 23rd Ave.
New faces are welcome, come join us for clean fun & a pot luck.
