Now that gather has moved into their store, they're ready to start offering classes on a wide range of topics. The first one coming up is a Do It Yourself Succulent Workshop on Thursday, June 26 from 6:30pm-8:00pm. According to owner Daisy McClellan, "You'll learn all about succulents, how to grow and tend to them, and how to create your very own hanging succulent." The store will provide  one painted can, soil, succulents, and extras to spruce up your new plant. If you want to make more than one, cans and succulents will be available for purchase. The cost is $15 and you'll need to RSVP here.  [541 Octavia]

Along with their regular selection of frozen yogurt, they're adding a "Rainbow Surprise" to the menu next week. Toppings are a "house blend of everyone's favorite fruity cereals." For every Rainbow Surprise sold between June 24-29, Souvla will donate $1 to the San Francisco LGBT Center[517 Hayes]
