AlmaVerde was created by Adriana Delgado with the amazing help of her son, Miles.
Adriana was born in Argentina and grew up in a rural town. She studied Agriculture (B.S. in Agronomy) and Natural Resources (M.S. in Environment and Natural Resources Management). She moved to Washington DC more than 15 years ago to work on international agricultural development. She now brings her experience to gardening in the DC area. She is a Certified Chesapeake Bay Landscape Professional (CBLP). She is a Volunteer Master Gardener and Master Naturalist. She gardens at local schools and native plant gardens, makes her hands dirty in her small yard and keeps learning about nature every day.
AlmaVerde is Certified Business Enterprise (CBE) by the Department of Small and Local Business Development (DSLBD) of DC Government.
