The corner of Martin Luther King Jr.

Still, even some old-timers would prefer you call it something else. I wandered around the neighborhood and found a lot of old-fashioned South-Central spirit.

I found Roberto Montiel supervising the painting of a new mural on the wall of the bakery he opened a few months ago after years of selling sweet bread on the streets. No, he requested that the mural start halfway up the wall, leaving the bottom for the graffiti. European immigrants and transplanted Midwesterners were first.

As a boy in the s, the late Times columnist Jack Smith patronized the nearby Vermont Square library. Luna is the Mexican equivalent of a sharecropper. During the week he runs a sewing machine. On the weekends, he and his mother, Aurora, tend the garden.

Escapism — Volume

Lisa Franklin and her husband live there. The Franklins get along well with their Spanish-speaking neighbors, she said.


And we respect each other. Respect was what Luna saw in the eyes of another neighbor, an elderly black woman next door who studied him as he began his garden. Eventually, she gave him a gift -- cuttings from a plant in her own yard. She died recently, but the bird of paradise is just starting to produce saffron-and-bluish-purple flowers. About Us.

California's gardens tell an immigrant story

Arrives by Wednesday, Oct 9. Pickup not available. Product Highlights Gardens are immobile, literally rooted in the earth, but they are also shaped by migration and by the transnational movement of ideas, practices, plants, and seeds. Drawing on historical archival research, ethnography, and over one hundred interviews with a wide range of people including suburban homeowners, paid Mexican immigrant gardeners, professionals at the most elite botanical garden in the West, and immigrant community gardeners in the poorest neighborhoods of inner-city Los Angeles, this book offers insights into the ways that diverse global migrations and garden landscapes shape our social world.
