Anamaria Gutierrez & Lea Scott
Este Garden Manager Anamaria Gutierrez is a South Texas native, urban farmer, entrepreneur and strong believer in sharing community through food.
In May of 2020 mid-pandemic, Anamaria and Lea Scott broke ground at Este Garden with the mission to grow food for the community that dines at Suerte and create a collaborative green space in the city where Austinites can explore, learn and eat.
Now in their fifth growing season, Anamaria and Lea have expanded their growing space threefold and grown a variety of seasonal vegetables and herbs, from heirloom corn in milpa beds to chocolate mint and edible flowers.
Through sustainable growing methods and rich, healthy soil from former Eastside Cafe Garden, they’ve grown 15 varieties of peppers, hundreds of lbs of onions and tomatoes galore for Mexican restaurant Suerte.
