About the Author

Marleny Franco’s passion for growing fresh and healthy foods were first ignited visiting her uncle’s farm in the temperate mountains of Colombia as a child. Today, she holds a master’s degree as a horticulturist and has served as a county agent in leading a highly successful urban gardening program. Her connection to nature, and love of teaching to garden in the urban setting, pushed her to found and executively direct a horticultural and environmental not-for-profit conservancy for 15 years. Her award-winning educational programs reached over 200,000 urban residents and transformed the landscape (literally) of urban areas throughout the state. She went on to start her own landscaping business, where she helped clients work with native species to bring their land to life, and to create a self-sustaining biome that brings joy to others.
