JUAN GUERRERO grows tomatillos on a scrap of land that used to be a chop shop for stolen cars in the South Bronx. It’s his little piece of Mexico.

“He says you cut them up with hot pepper for salsa,” said Jose Garcia, who grew up in Puerto Rico. Mr. Guerrero left of Puebla, Mexico, four years ago, but he speaks little English, so Mr. Garcia was translating.

He watched Mr. Guerrero peel the papery husk from a hard little green fruit and nodded yes, yes, yes, as his neighbor explained how to dry the fruit for seeds.

“In Puerto Rico,” Mr. Garcia said, chuckling, “my father always told me these were poison.” Then he politely tasted a pungent leaf that Mr. Guerrero had just picked from a bushy green herb.

“Papalo,” Mr. Guerrero said. “Como cilantro.”

“Gardening takes you back to your roots,” said Karen Washington, 37, who took a pickax and shovel to the debris three years ago and now heads the community garden. “My grandparents farmed in North Carolina. If you gave them some store-bought collard greens, they’d look at you like you were crazy.”
