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.

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.

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.
