Silber, Mark (1931? - )

Genre: Non-Fiction

Mark Silber was born in the Ukraine and emigrated with his family to the United States in 1944 when he was 13 years old.

He and his wife, Terry, both attended Harvard and lived and worked in Boston, weekending in Maine, until 1978 when they moved to Maine permanently and began organic farming at Hedgehog Hill Farm in Sumner.

Hedgehog Hill Farm became a working farm, providing herbs and produce for the local market. Later, the Silbers switched to growing and selling flowers.

The Silbers collaborated -- she writing, he photographing -- on several gardening books.
