Lorin Station

As part of the day of action on 10.10.10, our Streets Alive campaign planned and implemented a new drought tolerant and native garden in South Berkeley. Once a train stop in the East Bay, the site known as Lorin Station was a bare patch of dirt on a heavily trafficked intersection at Adeline and Alcatraz Streets.

With the help of over 80 volunteers, Lorin Station has been transformed! Streets Alive!

Sign up to volunteer at Lorin Station! We need ongoing help weeding, mulching, pruning and other gardening activities! Here's our calendar of activities.

The project was spearheaded by a number of groups including Earth Island Institute’s Streets Alive! program, The City of Berkeley’s Offices of Neighborhood Services and Economic Development, KIDS for the BAY, Berkeley Transition Town and the Adeline Merchants’ Association.
