Caleb Leech


Caleb Leech was curator of BBG’s Herb Garden until 2014. He spent his early childhood on New England farms whose idyllic appearance came at the cost of a lot of dreaded chores. While he did his best to shirk his responsibilities, the weeding, mucking, and hoeing eventually won his affection. By the time he was in his 20s, Caleb was working in his family’s Cape Cod landscaping business and making time to volunteer at the local CSA. Before arriving at BBG, Caleb honed his skills at seed foundations, permaculture gardens, and a hospital-healing garden. He is particularly interested in the connections people feel with plants and gardening.
