New York’s Garden Girl

ggpattiforweb_400-1Patricia Moreno is a nice Puerto Rican girl who grew up in Spanish Harlem. “The Garden Girl”  was educated at Nightingale-Bamford School for girls. So how did this Manhattan bred New Yorker end up being with her own backyard farm … a television show (about it), a magazine and a Farmer’s Almanac sponsorship??

“Her path to Urban Sustainable Living began in the mid 1990’s, after gaining seventy pounds during her pregnancy, and needing a way to be physically active and eat healthier. This began her path to finding and learning ways to make gardening fun and also fit into the city.” (From, “The Farmer’s Almanac“)

Patti has ideas. (And game.) Visit her website to view both. With her techniques, you don’t need a lot of land. This is a wonderful time to add quality to your life by raising some or all of your own food. Some might even say, if you don’t start at least THINKING about it … then you’re not paying attention …
