Mission Statement

The California Nursery Historical Park in Fremont provides many exciting opportunities for volunteers. Do you like to garden? We have a rose garden, cactus garden, Japanese garden, and pollinator garden. Do you like history? Our park is located on a portion of a 150-year old historic nursery that was instrumental in providing plants to a growing California. Do you need volunteer hours for school? There are many projects going on that you can be a part of.


The Friends of the California Nursery are people who enjoy and volunteer in our historic park. The gardens are maintained by volunteers who enjoy working in the rose garden, cactus garden, Japanese garden, historic trees, and pollinator garden. Volunteers and staff work with the Roeding family to catalogue and archive their nursery artifacts, so that one day the history of this amazing family, nursery, and their contribution to horticulture can be viewed by all and inspire all. Classes and tours take advantage of the plants and animals that reside here.

The Math Science Nucleus in conjunction with the City of Fremont is exploring Fremont's long history in the nursery business.

This is a beautiful garden to volunteer at. There are many beautiful roses and also other gardens that need tending. The volunteers are very friendly and knowledgeable about gardening and you will learn a lot while working.
