THE ONE PLACE in the San Francisco area

Postby pogo » Sun Feb 01, 2009 7:25 pm

not foresty in as an organization but is THE ONE PLACE in the San Francisco area that has character, comfy couches, a smoking room, great beer, fantastic coffee, pipe tobacco, cigars, games to play, outdoor areas, is built out of an old house and still looks like it, has poets, scientists from Berkley, musicians and people who read and like to hang out and chat about the best non-sense and more.

it is elegantly named in a forest fashion - one word ---> PUB
(not The Pub, just PUB)

Who: Christiania

Where: Copenhagen, Denmark

What: An independent part of DK's capital Copenhagen,
From Wikipedia:
Christiania, also known as Freetown Christiania (Danish: Fristaden Christiania) is a self-proclaimed autonomous neighbourhood of about 850 residents, covering 34 hectares (85 acres) in the borough of Christianshavn in the Danish capital Copenhagen.

Christiania has been a source of controversy since its creation in a squatted military area in 1971. Its cannabis trade was tolerated by authorities until 2004. Since then, measures for normalising the legal status of the community have led to conflicts, and negotiations are ongoing.

Among many Christiania residents, the community is known as staden ('the town'), short for fristaden ('the freetown').

Well, I agree that with the links you provided, I somehow realized that it would be better to join a team and help them to grow bigger. Since I have friends who are interested of having a forestry organization, we can join together. :)
