I have been the gardener of the historic Morris Jumel Mansion;the oldest house in NYC, Mayor Bloomberg's horticulturist at Gracie Mansion. I was The Horticulture Manager at The American Museum of Natural History's Theodore Roosevelt Park including seventeen other NYC Park Department's parks located in the West Side of Manhattan.
Presently I am the Administrative Horticulturist/ Manager of The Arthur Ross Citywide Nursery of The NYC Dept of Parks and Recreation. The nursery is operated with organic methodologies; we are a pesticide and herbicide free Citywide nursery. We implement the use of intergrated pest managment, plant washes,beneficial insect and organic pest controls only.
I offer Horticultural services which are not connected to the NYC Parks Department.
My father was in the buisiness and I have twenty five years of experience.
It is my philosophy that the use of pesticides and chemicals has done much harm to our enviornment. I have proven over the years with my life's work, that to have success in the garden's there's no need to use pesticides or herbicides. You just have to work a bit harder and smarter to be good to the ourselves,children,wildlife and Mother Earth.
