Grazers of the Roof: Part Two of Series

Here, we meet another one of our volunteers in an ongoing series designated to the collective force driving our garden.


West Portal

New York.  Born in the Bronx, grew up in Long Island

Number of cats:
No cats.  Two guinea pigs and a tortoise

Top restaurant pick:
Gialina in Glen Park.  We don’t go out much, but their pizza is as good as I can make it.

Volunteer at Graze the Roof since:
About six months ago.

Favorite place to stop and look around at Graze the Roof:
I like to look at the lettuce beds in the back.  The textures and colors – just how fast the lettuce grows.  And the scarlet runner beans!  I like watching those.  The flowers are so bright.  I don’t know why I never noticed them before.

Roof snack of choice:
Lettuce – no, those alpine strawberries!  I’m always looking for those.

What do you enjoy most about coming here?
I like it because it’s physical.  I would rather work with my hands or play in the dirt than stuff envelopes.

Don't stuff envelopes.  Volunteer!  Be a part of Graze the Roof every Thursday from 10am - 2pm at Glide.
