We are reaching out to friends, family and community to support us in the opening of a new collective space on First Street & Mission in Boyle Heights. The Ovarian Psycos will be working along side Yerberia Mayahuel and the Youth Media Collective to create and sustain a collective workspace.

Working both together and independently, each of our collectives will organize programming open to the community. We will be organizing a series of workshops and classes including Bike Repair, Monthly Community Bike Rides, Alternative Media for Youth, Community Radio, a Bi-weekly Herbal Study Group, Gardening Classes, Worm Composting and Wellness Sunday..more info TBA!

“Ovarian Psyco Cycles’ Bike Brigade Is the Best Thing Ever” – according to JEZEBEL!
