PROJECTS - RESTORATION BEGINS
Historical Garden is located by the Museum of Local History at 190 Anza Street in
Fremont, California. The garden is a representation of different plants found around
California during two separate eras. The first era is when the Ohlones lived in
our state without outsiders and the second era when agriculture
prevalent in this area.
The group responsible for planting and
tending this majestic garden is Tri-City
Ecology. The Tri-City Ecology in conjunction with the Math/Science
Nucleus and City of Fremont, Environmental Services Division are working
together with school groups (Kennedy High and Montessori School) to keep
the gardens as a teaching tool.
When we arrived at this location we found
that Bermuda grass had taken over some beautiful strawberry plants, palm
trees were growing in different areas of the garden, and also some of the
olive tree's seeds had planted themselves in the ground around the
tree. All of this needed to be groomed, and on Friday January 26,
2001 the Montessori Ceepers Club helped tend this deserving garden.
These students with their teacher Joanne Peters and with the help of Donna Olsen (Tri-City Ecology
Nelson Kirk (Community member), and
George Fisher (Community member) we were able to tackle the weeds, trim
some trees, and clean up leaf debris.
Saturday February 3, 2001 we will continue to
tend this beautiful garden from 12:00 - 4:00 pm. We are looking for
more volunteers to come and join us in our quest to care for our
city. If you are interested in helping tend the garden on a
regular basis please contact us at 790-6284 or e-mail
Special thanks to: City of Fremont
Environmental Services Division for their help in getting tools and also
for sending two staff members Barbara Silva and Forest Frasieur
