Grace Marchant started planting her world-famous garden on Telegraph Hill in 1949, working the steep hillside day in and day out for 33 years. Gary Kray began working with her in 1979 and took over the responsibilities of the garden after her death in December 1982. Gary in turn died in 2012. Learn more about Gary in the San Francisco Chronicle obituary and in an article written by Larry Habegger, published in Fall 2012 issue of The Semaphore, the quarterly newsletter of the Telegraph Hill Dwellers.

There’s more to come soon.
