The Boston Society of Architects lecture series on architecture and the built environment illuminates the ways in which all of us shape the design of our neighborhoods and cities, and the profound impact design has on our communities and the way in which we live.

Patti “Garden Girl” Moreno, a writer and television host in Roxbury, Massachusetts, spoke on urban organic gardening at a recent BSA presentation. Moreno addressed composting, growing enough produce to feed a family on a city plot, designing edible landscapes and other sustainable living practices. She is a contributing editor to Fine Gardening’s GROW magazine, writer for Organic Gardening Magazine and The Old Farmers’ Almanac, and the co-host of Growing a Greener World, a new public television show about gardening and living sustainably.
