In 1999, Elizabeth Licata bought an old Victorian in the Allentown neighborhood of Buffalo, and realized that a garden came with it. A shady one with a lot of maple roots.
Licata’s had a lot of fun and even learned a few things since then and enjoys sharing her triumphs and frustrations with others on her blog Gardening While Intoxicated.
Licata likes to rant passionately for:
•boring gardening, i.e. lawns and foundation plantings
•bad garden vendors
•dumb TV gardening shows
•purists and elitism in general
In the real world Licata is the editor of Buffalo Spree magazine and a freelance writer and art curator. She helps run Garden Walk Buffalo and has written the text for a book about Garden Walk. She has also written and edited several art-related books. Contact Elizabeth: ealicata at yahoo.com
