About LEAF

What is LEAF?
Local Ecology and Agriculture Fremont (LEAF) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to providing environmental education to the Fremont community about sustainable and ecological practices, including local food production and organic gardening, waste reduction, green building, and resource conservation.

LEAF is currently working with other Fremont community organizations to start neighborhood gardens. Over 751 people have already joined and many of them have accumulated some dirt under their fingernails by pitching in with several gardens around town.

LEAF Center at the California Nursery Historical Park has raised planter beds available for rent.  LEAF Planter Rental Application 9.5.14.pdf.

  • Meet new people!
  • Learn from your elders, your neighbors, your peers, or youth!
  • Get hands on experience with sustainable gardening practices!
  • Be an active member of your local community!
  • Share in the growing, harvesting, and eating of fresh, healthy produce!
  • Play in the dirt!
