A Visit to my Garden in Manhattan

Last week, members of MSLO organized a volunteer day at The Martha Stewart Garden for Living at Madison Avenue and 99th Street in Manhattan.  This beautiful and serene community garden was funded by the Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia Foundation in 2007 on an empty, trash infested lot at the George Washington Carver Residences, across the street from the Martha Stewart Center for Living at Mount Sinai Medical Center. The garden was designed by our garden editors Andrew Beckman, Tony Bielaczyc, and Stacey Hirvela. It features lovely perennials, shrubs and trees and is maintained by MSLO volunteers and residents from the George Washington Carver.  The garden offers a wonderful refuge for patients at the Center for Living as well as the residents of George Washington Carver.
