Edith Isidoro is a horticulturist living in the Great Basin of Nevada. She has tried everything from truck gardening to native landscaping and greenhouse production in a very dry environment that many would not consider hospitable to plant life. Yet armed with appropriate knowledge and experience Edith has managed to raise most vegetables and demonstrated that desert natives can be beautiful and relatively maintenance free. She calls her efforts “Garden of Edith”.
Combining her experiences gardening in the desert and her formal education in horticulture; Edith writes about and photographs her garden and her neighbors’ gardens in the Great Basin. She has B.S. and M.S. degrees in horticulture from New Mexico State University.
