The garden is presented with different walls of distinct materials: a metal wall symbolizing the Mexico-USA border division, an intense red-colored wall representing Mexican heritage, and a stone wall representing the solidity and remembrance of immigrants These elements form a courtyard-garden with edible plants that opens to the neighboring vineyards. Photos and memories of the immigrants who built the garden were placed on the stone wall itself.
