 A Blast From The Past!

Garden Design magazine included Lydia’s Magic Garden in an article published on December 1998. The story called, “Gardens Under Fire”,  depicts the struggle New York City gardeners faced in the 90’s and how each tried to preserve the Casita tradition. Photo’s by Ejlat Feuer.
