Josh Altidor was born and raised in Haiti. He currently serves as the General Superintendent of Parks Maintenance and Turf Management for the City of Boston.
Andy Brand graduated from the University of CT with BS and MS degrees in Environmental Horticulture and Plant Science respectively. For 27 years Andy was employed as a nursery manager in Hamden. In 2018, Andy joined the staff at the Coastal Maine Botanical Garden as Curator of Living Collections.
The design features 40 native species and was created with the premise that using native plants in landscaping can be beautiful and achievable for gardeners of all skillsets in terms of scope and budget as well as promote wildlife.
The design also allows gardeners to take an incremental approach in developing their plan, adding new areas and native species as time and funds permit.
