Bike Tune-Ups @ Berkeley Flea Market !

That's right neighbors, Saturdays
Soul On Wheels will be at the Berkeley Flea Market, offering Bicycle Tune-Ups and Repairs

I have removed the price list from this post and indeed, from this project. Understanding what this work is all about for me, I have been drawn to the social theory of gift economy. Reciprocal actions of joy and friendship now freely follow my recurring gift of bike repair service.

See You at The Flea Market, Ashby BART, Saturdays!

Well folks, you may have noticed that i haven't been at the Market very consistently this last month, and indeed i will not be there this SAturday, either.

This week there is a special reason for this: I will be working with Word.Sound.Life. to document the goings-on at the Oakland Green Jobs Now event in MOsswood Park, Saturday 1-4pm.

The event, hosted by the Ella Baker Center in support of Green For All's Nat'l Day Of Action to Build the New Economy, will include a free concert by local artist Femi and should be a truly exciting coming together of socially and environmentally aware and motivated folks.

Come Check out the Event at Mosswood,

Look out for follow-up info here, regarding the Event AND the return of Soul ON Wheels to the Market...
