The Belle Haven Community Garden is a service project of Menlo Park Rotary Club. Created in 2015, the garden is community-operated on land owned by the City of Menlo Park at Ivy and Market Streets, a short walk from Belle Haven Elementary school. Local residents may sign up (at no cost) to cultivate garden beds for one year at a time.  Volunteers from the Rotary Club help gardeners with periodic maintenance and repairs, equipment, weed cleanups, and paying the water bill. Master Gardeners provide technical assistance during planting and harvest.

Join Us @ the Tour de Menlo 🚴‍♀️🚴‍♂️🚴‍♀️🚴‍♂️ Scholarship ride! August 17, 2019 at Menlo-Atherton High School - www.tourdemenlo.com
 
Tour de Menlo offers three Peninsula routes for cyclists of all abilities, along with good weather, great food, and plenty of SAG support for those who need it.
 
Riders have their choice of 35-, 46- and 65-mile routes, all well-marked and beginning at Menlo-Atherton High School. After taking different routes from the start, all riders eventually will head south on Stevens Canyon Road to the final rest stop at Madrone Park. Riders can rest and enjoy refreshments before heading back to Menlo Atherton High School for a relaxing lunch in the courtyard.
 
The ride is sponsored by the Rotary Club of Menlo Park Foundation and the Almanac. All proceeds are used to support need-based Rotary scholarships, numerous other Rotary Foundation projects and the Almanac’s Holiday Fund, which contributes more than $150,000 a year to 10 local nonprofits. Second Harvest Food Bank, Life Moves (formerly Innvision-Shelter Network) and St. Anthony’s Dining Room are among the beneficiaries of the Holiday Fund.

The Future of Corporate Leadership: How Transparency Is Key to Innovation
Wednesday, February 27, 2019, 5:30 - 7:00 PM
Menlo College Innovation Center

Menlo Park Rotary Club, Impossible, and Menlo College proudly present an unparalleled networking event and keynote panel discussion of transparency in the workplace and its importance to building a successful business model. Several studies have shown that transparency is the number one factor determining workplace happiness, which is directly linked to trust and out of the box thinking - two important drivers of innovation. As consumers are increasingly concerned about such issues as fair labor, sustainable resourcing, and the environment, transparency across the value chain has become key to regain trust and to create a competitive edge.
 
Featured speakers: Scott Weiss, Kwame Ferreira, Deborah Acosta
