growing for good
As you enter the grounds of CR Stone Garden, you'll detect the scents of beautiful flowers and freshly turned soil. If you listen, you'll hear the buzzing of bees as they go about their work. As for what you'll see, you'll see the kind yet determined faces of our volunteers as they live out their passions to serve the people of our community.
Each plant at LEAF C.R. Stone Garden lends itself to an ecosystem of learning and giving. Most days, you'll find Elaine, the President of LEAF, getting her hands dirty as she works alongside our many dedicated volunteers. The goal? Change—change for the betterment of life and of our world.
On any given day in Fremont and in many cities around the world, one can witness the extremely long lines of people waiting at local food banks. While we at LEAF work hard to see our neighbors have access to the healthy food we grow and donate year-round, it would please us to no end to see these lines disappear. Until they do, we've got work to do. And it involves growing produce to the specific needs in our community.
“How wonderful is it that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.”
- Anne Frank
Partnering with our efforts at CR Stone Garden are Tri-City Volunteers of Fremont—Alameda County’s largest client-direct food bank, and Centro de Servicios of Union City, which is the longest running nonprofit and social service agency in the Tri-City area. These two amazing organizations distribute our produce among the many residents who rely on their services each day.
