Abstract

Short article about the Deer Isle garden of Bonnie Bochan and Guillermo Diaz. Details how Diaz cultivates the garden using techniques he learned on his family's farm on Chimborazo, the highest mountain in his native Ecuador. Emphasizes how Diaz and wife Bochan, an ornithologist, manage their garden without pesticides, using the choice and placement of plants to encourage birds, butterflies, and bees while discouraging harmful insects. Mentions local interest generated by the garden, which is often included in the Island Heritage Trust's Walks and Talks events.
