Urban wannabe homestead with varied sections: vegetable garden, flower garden, memorial garden, fruit tree area, chicken coop area; and places to relax, exercise, and meditate with flowers in view. Though this is a private garden, the memorial garden is in honor of past residents from E 97 St.
An ever-evolving backyard paradise. From humble beginnings just 5 years ago, to upper and lower vegetable gardens, herb beds, fruit trees, berry patches, and perennials.
