Edible Schoolyard's Annual Mother's Day Plant Sale

Where: Martin Luther King, Jr. Middle School, 1781 Rose (at Grant), Berkeley, 510-558-1335

When: Sat., May 7, 9 a.m.-4 p.m.

Cost: Prices vary for individual items

The rundown: There's an offhand chance you've heard of the little Berkeley nonprofit Edible Schoolyard. You know, the one Alice Waters joined Twitter to talk about? Well this Saturday the scrappy little start-up is having a plant sale fundraiser, and you're invited! With nothing more than elbow grease and can-do spirit, these go-getters managed to round up a bit of help for their event, with food coming from Acme Bread, Blue Bottle, Let's Be Frank, and the Pop-Up General Store, to name a few. There will also be face-painting, hand-made signs, and lots of other stuff that seems grassroots-y! All snark aside, this event boasts tons of good food vendors and raffle prizes, and Edible Schoolyard has made great strides in implementing public school gardening programs for the last 15 years. Would it kill you to buy a plant?

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
