Free Indoor Gardening Fair in Oakland is NOT About Weed

Posted By on Fri, Mar 4, 2011 at 1:20 PM

First Annual Spring Fling Hydroponic and Organic Gardening Fair

Where: Technical Institute for Indoor Gardening, 681 Fourth St. (at Castro), Oakland, 510-891-1557

When: Sat. and Sun., Mar. 5-6, 10 a.m.-4 p.m.

Cost: Free

The rundown: Just like those "tobacco filtration" devices you can purchase at head shops around the country, this weekend's hydroponic gardening fair is not about weed. With advertising that boasts a full line of renewable energy products, sales on bulk soil, and lighting workshops at 11 and 2 each day, this exhibition is trying its darndest to show that hydro gardening isn't just for stoners. So come to Oakland for some great instructional information on how to grow, like, parsley in your closet. There will also be free organic snacks from "Chef Lamundo" (who?), which may be better than the Cheese Whiz and Bacon Bits you were planning to munch on the couch.

  • 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.'"
