This study area is located within the San Francisco Bay Area on the border of South Berkeley and North Oakland (aka Broakland). While the core of the study area centers around a vacant lot left undevelopable due to contamination from a former dry-cleaning facility, it encompasses a roughly 1,500-foot radius out from the core in order to capture a broader swath of additional vacant lots, neglected spaces, and a range of densities, scales, and uses. As such we are hoping to paint a richer picture of the plant diversity growing in this equally culturally diverse neighborhood.
