Adam Garrett-Clark

Community Elder

Adam founded one of the longest-running Tiny Home Communities in Oakland in 2015 with friends, and managed operations for a second Community from 2018-2020 known as “Buspatch.”

In 2018 he founded Tiny Logic LLC with a mission to propel the proliferation of tiny home opportunities in the Bay Area. He has sold, permitted and built backyard tiny homes (ADU’s) across California both modular and stick-built.


In 2021 Tiny Logic signed a contract with the City of Oakland to operate the city’s first Co-Governed Tiny Home Community in collaboration with a group of 16 unhoused people from a longtime encampment, as part of the city’s funded transitional housing program.

Adam managed three offices as Operations Manager for Tenants rights and racial justice nonprofit Causa Justa :: Just Cause from 2017-2018.

In 2013 Adam apprenticed with Biomimicry Architect and Futurist Eugene Tssui, known as the creator of Berkeley’s Fish House, designing a personal living pod prototype in Mt. Shasta. In 2014 Adam went on a permaculture pilgrimage to Southern Australia, wwoofing on farms and ultimately apprenticing with co-originator of the Permaculture design philosophy, David Holmgren on his 30+ year old farm Melliodora.
