Nick Storrs has been working in and around gardens for the past decade. He started his passion for growing on market farms outside of Burlington, VT before coming to New York City. In the Big Apple, Nick was a gardener in Central Park before managing the Randall’s Island Urban Farm for 8 years. There he raised over 200 varieties of fruits and vegetables while leading an education program teaching others about the importance of good food and our relationship to it.
He is currently an instructor at the New York Botanical Garden as well as offering classes at the Lyndhurst Estate. His work at the New York Botanical Garden specializes in the Vegetable Gardening and Plant Propagation.
Through his work, Nick pushes to see gardens in our area become less of a decoration for the outside of houses and more of an extension of the home itself. Whether its a large kitchen garden or just a few pepper pots on the window sill, a garden should be a place we return to week after week to feel rejuvenated, to receive sustenance and to bring beauty into our lives.
With an admiration for generations of gardeners and grandmothers, uncles and friends who have helped cared for and love these spaces over the years, he is proud to help people continue in this long, human tradition.
