Supporting Oakland's Local Independent Businesses and Artists

About OG ,

Our campaign encourages people to consciously support Oakland Grown businesses and artists — those unique locally-owned businesses and artists that have their roots in Oakland. Shopping Oakland Grown not only helps keep the character of Oakland, but also helps strengthen our economy, and preserve our environment.

Oakland Grown has already built a buzz and we hope to direct thousands of individuals both merchants and consumers to the ShopOakland.com website to this local shopping campaign.

If you have an Oakland based business please register for a FREE listing at ShopOakland.com.

Need to find somewhere close to home to shop for yourself or for a gift? ShopOakland.com can lead you in the right direction!

The Shop Oakland Campaign is the product of a collaboration between the City of Oakland and the Oakland Merchants Leadership Forum (OMLF).

    Hi, I thought you might like to post this information on your web site for your readers to see. Kid’s Climb Summer Camp is a fun activity for kids this summer in uptown Oakland.

    Kid’s Climb summer camp at Great Western Power Company, 520 20th St, Oakland

    Indoor rock climbing is a safe and fun way to improve kids’ fitness, coordination and self-confidence. We work with kids ages 6 to 14, from novice to experienced climbers. Camp runs M-F from 9AM to Noon.

    Camp dates:

    June 29-July 3
    July 6 – July 10
    July 20 – July 24
    July 27-July 31
    Aug 3 – Aug 7
    Aug 10 – Aug 14

    In all our camps, kids learn how to climb and belay safely with an emphasis on personal responsibility. One day per session the kids will climb outdoors in the Berkeley hills.

    Advanced registration required. To register or for more information about camp, please call 510-452-2022.
    Cost: $200/members and $250/non-members.
