Roots: A Night of Live Storytelling in the Garden

Join us for a night of outdoor storytelling in the iconic Berkeley Community Garden (500 Tremont Street). Bring your own picnic dinner, and we’ll provide some light refreshments. The evening will begin by meeting your neighbors with mingling and guided storytelling, followed by a live performance of personal stories.

The theme of the night is “Roots,” from literal of a tree to figurative roots of culture. What keeps you in one place or grounds you in one perspective? Are your roots your strength or your shackles? If you would like to tell a personal 5-minute story on this theme, please email Tell us your name and a little about your story!

This event is free and open to the public. Invite your friends on Facebook.

Dogs are not permitted in the garden.

Our programming is supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts. To find out more about how National Endowment for the Arts grants impact individuals and communities, visit
