Hello, I'm new to Oakland Wiki and here I go!
I'm bringing my curiosity and perspective as a father to the community building activity of working on a local wiki.
I currently reside in the 'Slums of Piedmont' also known as 'Baja Piedmont' which though technically in Piedmont is only a stones throw from the border of Oakland. My children and I have noted that there are more trees in Piedmont vs. Oakland.
