The Math Science Nucleus in conjunction with CalNurCo
(California Nursery Company Legacy Council) and the City of Fremont
is exploring Fremont's long history in the nursery business. We
have started an active native nursery for restoration projects
in the East Bay on the former wholesale Nursery site.
We have also begun to 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.
Historical photos, letters, journals, artifacts, and
videos have been uncovered that will bring this history back to
life. California Nursery Company Legacy Council is sharing
their materials to create a history on the web that educate and inspire
children and adults alike.
You will learn about
Jose de Jesus Vallejo, Jonas Clark, John Rock, William Landers, Luther Burbank,
Johannes and Federick Reimers, and the famous Roeding Family that
influenced the history of agriculture in this state. This is a
history that has been hidden, but will soon become available to the
general public. This website will help share the history as we
verify and post the information.
To get updates please
put in your email below, you can control when you want to get off.
We do not share your emails.
