LEAF Center is community garden located at Fremont‘s California Nursery Historical Park (CNHP) on Niles Boulevard and Nursery Avenue. The LEAF Center was built and is maintained by LEAF volunteers. It features raised planters filled with a custom soil mix and drip irrigation on automatic timers. Planters are available for rent to residents of Fremont, Newark, Sunol, Union City and Hayward.
CNHP is an agriculturally significant property owned by the the City of Fremont and though the city provides the land, it does not provide funding; planter rental fees pay for Leaf Center operations and improvements.
LEAF Center hosts our biggest event, LEAF Earth Day, in April with live music, over 20 booths about gardening and sustainable living plus seedlings from our very own LEAF Nursery are for sale. Due to COVID, LEAF Earth Day will not be held in 2021.
