People Who Plant #2: At Fenway Victory Gardens

People who plant at fenway victory gardens boston
“We have a lot of gardeners who are older; who gave a lot earlier — they saved the gardens actually a number of times. Like Phyllis — unfortunately she’s in the hospital right now, she’s 94 and she has a double plot right up off the center. She was around when the Red Sox were trying to pave this for a parking lot. What the gardeners did was they pretended that there were more gardeners. So they all took double plots and made it look like it was more active. It was a rough period around here then…in the 60s and 70s.”
(President Fenway Gardens)

About Rochelle Greayer

Hi, I'm Rochelle and for 18 years I have worked as a landscape designer, author/writer, and design teacher. I've designed residential and hospitality (for hotels, restaurants, and spas) gardens across the USA and in the UK, Europe and the Middle East. After many years of teaching garden design topics in person, I launched the PITH + VIGOR Boot Camp series in early 2018. Through my blog, social media, and online courses (Garden Design Bootcamp and Planting Design Boot Camp) I aim to help homeowners learn how to confidently design and create home gardens that reflect their own personal and unique style.
