Where to go this weekend: Oakland’s Jack London Square

With a fresh influx of residents, shops, and restaurants, Oakland’s historic district (and Sunset’s soon-to-be home) has never been more fun. Josh Sens takes us down to the waterfront.

Free plants for all!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 17th. That’s when the biannual Plant Exchange takes place in the front lawn of the First Presbyterian Church of Oakland, CA from noon to 4pm.

See you soon: Sunset’s Menlo Park gardens are open through Oct 30

As we begin boxing up our Cliff May ranch house in preparation for our dual moves to Oakland’s Jack London Square and Sonoma’s Cornerstone, we’ll be closing the gates to Sunset‘s gardens on October 30, 2015.
