Verdant Cities is a blog about things that I find interesting as I live, work and play in and around NYC and travel to other places. It is a personal blog with professional leanings.
So I am Gil Lopez; urbanist, artist, urban farmer and eco-educator. Raised in Hattiesburg, Mississippi and now living in New York City, via Orlando, FL; I spent many a youthful summer visiting my family in Los Angeles, CA. I’m not an english/grammar teacher and my posts and writing will reflect that. I enjoy going and doing in the city. Most of the posts here are report backs of what I have learned, sometimes I have a bit of commentary on the topic. Many posts highlight what I am doing and teaching. If you like what you see please say so in the comments.
