About the speaker
Gregory Kloehn is an artist and tiny house builder. He uses found materials, including illegally dumped items, to build unique mobile shelters for the homeless residents of his neighborhood. His efforts have attracted attention from all over the world, and from all types, from off-the-grid survivalists to the media (he’s been featured on Inside Edition, Rachel, and many other shows) to green-minded micro-home design enthusiasts.
He first became known for his designs in 2011, when he built a home in Brooklyn, New York out of a dumpster, outfitting it with granite countertops, hardwood floors, a rooftop deck and plumbing. Now he runs workshops in East Oakland building more tiny homes for the homeless, and travels around to teach other communities worldwide as well.
We are a small group of people who really like the idea of spreading joy - especially through good coffee. What we do is not complicated. We purchase high-quality green coffee which we then locally roast in small batches. We aren’t trying to be the next hippest and richest coffee company. Our passion and mission is to dig our roots down deep into Oakland, our home! http://www.slojoy.com/
