About the Evergreen Desis.

The Organisation

The Evergreen Desis consists of Indian homeowners and neighbours residing in Evergreen, San Jose, CA. It is a community mailing list founded in August 2002 by Sundari Josyula. Since then this group has grown rapidly. As of October 2007, its membership, through word of mouth alone, has grown to approximately 1500 members.

Membership to the Evergreen Desis is free and open to all Evergreen residents of Indian origin.

Evergreen Desi members exchange information on a variety of topics through an active moderated yahoogroups mailing list called evergreen_desi. To join the mailing list, click here. The mailing list averages close to 400 messages per month. In addition to exchanging messages, Evergreen Desis meet regularly for picnics, potlucks and cultural events organised by group member volunteers in local halls and parks.
