Im Zuge der Umgestaltung des Buchrainplatzes - hier findet jeden Samstag der Wochenmarkt statt - im Frankfurter Stadtteil Oberrad wurde im August 2016 diese Figur einer Gärtnersfrau aufgestellt. Oberrad war und ist als "Gärtnerdorf" bekannt. Noch heute gibt es hier am Rande der Großstadt viele Gärtnereien, die Gemüse, Kräuter und Blumen anbauen, die überwiegend in Frankfurt angeboten werden.
Geschaffen hat die lebensgroße und 1,2 Tonnen schwere Eichenholzplastik der Frankfurter Bildhauer Peter Meier. Finanziert wurde sie vom Bürgerverein Oberrad.
