DC Gardeners Oral History Project - Michaela Borghese

Subject

History
Urban Agriculture

Description

The Neighborhood Farm Initiative interviewed members of Washington, DC's growing urban agriculture community to document the history of growing food in the city.

Borghese grew up on a farm in her native Austria where she learned to garden and prepare food from her mother. She came to Washington for school, and eventually settled in the Cleveland Park neighborhood where she continues to grow produce on much of her property. Borghese discusses the difficulty of growing food as the climate changes from year to year, and the neighborhood reaction to her fully planted front yard.
