"Karyn my first raw inpiration as well. 22 years ago, in Chicago, I got a job in her green house growing wheatgrass. I didn't even know what the stuff was! But I saw all these glowing, healthy people coming in to buy it and I got curious. She…"

Hey Nana, I'm a little confused. There are already a lot of Oakland/Berkeley people in the SF Bay group, and it would be redundant to have a separate group, especially since East Bay people sometimes come to North Bay meetups, and vice versa. If you want to get Oakland stuff together, you can post it in the SF Bay group no problem, and people are already there to see your threads.
Hey Nana! Welcome to 30BaD. We've already got a meetup for the SF Bay Area that I'd like to keep Oakland stuff in! There are quite a few East Bay people in there, who I'm sure would love to go to a meetup if you want to put one together. Not much has gone on in the group since my friend Dave left the country and he and I stopped organizing get-togethers, but there's a need there if you want to put anything together!
