- From: Gardening & Deck Design (Summer 06)

“My concept of what’s possible as far as gardening goes is pretty open ended,” says Gayla Trail, who grows edibles and ornamentals on a roof deck, in a strip of city-owned property at the side of her apartment building and at a community garden. Trail credits her can-do attitude to her West Indian-born grandmother, who grew vegetables on her balcony in St. Catharines, Ontario.

In 2000, Trail launched YouGrowGirl.com, an online community of mostly North American gardeners but with members as far away as Australia and India.”
