By Rainey Hopewell
Hello, Oaklandish neighbours. My name is Rainey Hopewell. I live with my partner, Margot Johnston, in the house tucked directly behind the Haultain Common, between Avebury & Asquith. This year, the Haultain Common will be nine years old. So surprisingly radical in its inception, the Haultain Common seems utterly common now.
City Council's growing interest in growing food on public land has piqued our curiosity to check in with ourselves about the Haultain Common, and reap the harvest of our learning about growing food on public land.
