Hi! My friends call me August which is short for Augustus. My childhood friends also call me Joey. I currently live in Astoria New York but I was born in Brooklyn. I've been digging into the earth since the wee age of 5 or 6 when I planted my first seeds . I grew up near a forest where I would spend much of my childhood climbing the trees, playing in the "dirt" and getting lost amongst the rambles and understory plants. I was fascinated with everything that lived in that little forest, particularly what lived within the forest litter and how seemingly close it was tied to what lived above it. My first plant was a cane begonia. To my G.I. Joes it would become a bamboo grove which experienced a weekly monsoon. My passion for plants and plant relations continues to evolve and it seems to have even taken on a spiritual context. It has become to me a form of meditation and an expression for a desire for peace. I have actually been a member of Gardenweb since I was 15 which would make it almost 15 years now but I forgot my old account information 5 years ago and so I re-registered because I just love this site!
