Underground garden

Underground garden

There is an underground garden in Fresno, California that is meant to mimic Greece. Baldassare Forestiere spent 40 years hand digging this 10-acre underground garden paradise beneath the hot dry Fresno hardpan, with different microclimates and grafted multiple-fruit trees growing through holes in the ceiling, which are still thriving 90 years later. It's open for visitors.
