Introducing The Leaflet, City of Hayward's official environmental newsletter! Formally known as "Your Hayward Environment - Community News', the newsletter has been re-imagined and re-branded in order to bring you the environmental news that is important to you.
Seed Savers & Gardeners Club

Hayward Public Library’s Seed Lending Library allows borrowers to “check out” a wide variety of vegetable and flower seeds to plant in their gardens for home use. You don’t have to be an expert gardener to participate and there is no cost to join.

From the hills to the shoreline, Hayward's environmental health depends on all of us. Join us during a monthly clean up and help keep Hayward clean & green.
