West End Community Urban Garden & Nursery
Haylene Green "The Garden Queen" When I was only five years old, I was passionate about digging in the dirt. My mother nicknamed gardening my "happy hobby”. Though my father’s family traditionally were farmers, my mother had never experimented with gardening. My mother saw my passion as a way to introduce me to a healthy lifestyle. She and I learned side by side the benefits of planting, reaping and eating healthy foods from healthy soil. This became a model of my daily habit. I decided that sharing this ideal through word and example would become the goal to which I would dedicate the rest of my life. In my small way, I tried to introduce this concept to my friends, neighbors, and community with results which ranged from temporary enthusiasm to quiet indifference."
