The earthquake destroyed many of the floating gardens where they grow their crops and flowers, but the chinampa farmers in the Xochimilco borough of Mexico City are not about to give up. They share their woes with quiet grace, the history of farming here tracing back 30 years for some. As they point out where the worst damage occurred, their will to see these gardens flourish once again is unbroken.
