Mary, Mary quite contrary, how does your garden grow? No, really....we at Team Nest Builder need to know!  Our Team Concierge and Marketing/PR Manager plan to create two very different gardens this summer, one in Rockaway and the other in Sparta, and both claim to possess black thumbs.  Below you’ll find the first installment in this blog series:  BEGINNING.  Keep an eye out for DURING posts, and the finale, ENDING. Throughout the series, please post advice for either garden on our Team Nest Builder Facebook Page, learn from our mistakes, or simply sit back and have a good laugh at our efforts!




Elen's Rockaway rooftop, ready to be transformed into an abundant organic vegetable garden.

Gardener:  Elen Endly, our Team Concierge

Experience:  Medium (Gardened for years yet suffers from the “Black Thumb of Death”)

Goal:  To grow an organic vegetable garden filled with lettuce, tomatoes, peppers, radishes, potatoes and more on her rooftop.

Challenge:  In addition to the difficulty involved in transporting water up to the garden, Elen foresees a major challenge being lack of time to devote to the garden due to being a mother of young, very active twins.

Gardener:  Teresa Sellinger, our Marketing and PR Manager

Experience:  Beginner (Experience to date basically involves haphazardly scattering flower seeds and hoping some take.)

Goal: Create an organized, lovely butterfly garden

Challenge:  An evil vine grows through the area, entwining and choking everything in its path.  Teresa’s past attempts to thwart the vine failed and resulted in the death of many a flower that got caught in the crossfire.

Got any ideas for our Team Nest BuilderRockaway and Sparta gardens?  Send them our way!  Believe us, we can use any help we can get.  And keep an eye out for our next Gardens post to check on our progress!
