The third Inner Sunset Sundays of 2012, “From the Ground Up”, delved into skillsharing (see details below). Anybody could teach something and anybody could sit down and learn. Examples including weaving, keeping bees, playing musical instruments, and more.

This was possibly the best-received event of them all. There was so much to do and the weather was warm and sunny. This truly showed how wonderful life can be when community has a space in the heart of a neighborhood to gather.
