The Forestiere Underground Gardens


The Dallas Morning News has a feature about a book by Silvio Manno called The Forestiere Underground Gardens: A Pictorial Journey  – telling the story of how Baldassare Forestiere built 10 acres of underground gardens in California.

Using little more than a shovel, pick, wheelbarrow and his imagination, Mr. Forestiere carved his living quarters in about eight years, starting in 1906. He continued to dig, expanding by 1923 to 10 acres of patios, walkways and chambers.
