About Us



My name is George and gardening is one of my long-time interests. I grew up in Georgia in the 1950s where my great grandfather created a beautiful garden every summer. My love of growing things started there and has never left me. 


I have lived in Sunnyvale since 1989. I am a  University of California Certified Master Gardener and I love growing interesting and delicious food!  I have long enjoyed healthy cooking - especially fresh greens.  

Having lived in Sunnyvale's rich multi-cultural environment for a long time I have been fortunate to meet many wonderful people of many ethnic backgrounds. The foods of these cultures is one of the most interesting things to me. 


I decided to combine my love of gardening with my love of ethnic food and, since I live on Norman Drive, Norman Gardens was born!
