Sharing life with friends in Oakland
Radish is an intentional community for people who believe in the "Obvious Truth" - that we are happiest and healthiest surrounded by people we love and admire. We design our home around the people who make us the best versions of ourselves.
We are 19 adults and 4 newborns living in a 6-building, 10-unit compound in the Temescal/Longfellow neighborhood in Oakland.
The community was founded in 2019 and is proudly co-owned by the residents and the wider community
