We’re on a crusade TO HELP MAKE THE WORLD HEALTHIER AND HAPPIER.

Alfrea knows that fresh, quality food grown with your own hands can make this happen. That’s why we work tirelessly to bring on-site gardens, training and workshops, and a 24/7 online marketplace to workplaces and communities who want to get involved in all things fresh food.

BORN FROM A LOVE OF GARDENING AND THE DESIRE TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

For years, social entrepreneur and avid gardener David Wagstaff has helped rent out pastures, find beekeepers, and manage the day-to-day around his parents’ farm. At the same time, he has often wondered how to improve his parents’ health and how to maintain his own. David discovered that fresh, quality food is the answer to over 50% of health related issues.

David knew he wasn’t the only one worried about his health and that of the people around him. He started Alfrea to connect more people to the power of growing, sharing, and eating fresh food, no matter how much time or experience they have.
