Tie your neighbors shoelaces together,
this is very dangerous:do it outside: To make a flaming groove, from a recipe by funky Paul (olsen?) in 1967 Haight Ashbury:
To make better neighbors, punch holes in a big can to make a decorative lantern, tie two or three plastic bags together, stretch out, sprinkle salt sugar or treacle and water on it and twist it up into a long rope, tie this inside the can so it dangles below when suspended on high, place a bowl of water below, set fire to the end of the plastic rope… light show and wizbang fire works.

Let’s keep regular people in the area – They raise the rent more and more. Studios are all above $1200 now and 1br. are at least $1500 – What happened to the artist in the area? Do we really want upper middle class people only? What about more families.
Have people sponsor individual blocks a la “highway sponsorship”. For example I could do a block with Booksmith. Booksmith, a neighborhood bookstore with live author readings and great newsstand supplies for international residents + visitors. Plus all the cool stores on that block could even highlight worthy social programs such as yoth programs (huckleberry?) Thx. Great idea
Some farfetched ideas for growth in the Haight.
Make Haight from Stanyan to Masonic a real “garden mall” – no cars (or just limit to delivery vehicles @ certain hours), but yes to bikes, beer gardens, picnics, shopping, frisbee, reading, sleeping, growing food.
it’s time to get creative and truly think “outside the box” in terms of the homeless problem here. If transplanted kids need money for weed, put ‘em to work growing food for the community. Or something else. Not sit & Lie laws.
Where would there be a place for a community garden? I’d love to see the backyards of entire blocks developed into parkland/farms/teagardens/gathering spaces. We could produce so much of our food right here. How to start this?
xoxo phyteclub Katie I have no clue… But that’s the daily vision.
There are so many wonderful street food vendors in SF right now, but I hardly ever see any in the Lower Haight. Is there anything we can do to encourage them to come to the Lower Haight?
We had one a couple years ago. I thought it was great. It needed more vendors, but it was a wonderful start. It probably just needs another year or two to fully bloom. I went to a recent Lower Haight Art Walk, which had great attendence, so I think that there’s definitely an audience for a daytime street fair as well.
