I wanted to learn more about community gardens so I took at trip to Miami to find out more about what I need to do in order to make the garden happen. Down in Miami, I met up with one of the representatives of the community gardens in Miami (Roger of Urban Greenworks) and he showed me around different gardens that they've started all over Miami and answered any questions I had to ask about the process.
After looking at all the gardens in Miami, we drove to Pahokee to check out a few lots where I could possibly start my own garden. I showed them everything Pahokee had to offer and he was amazed about all the empty spaces in Pahokee that were available and nobody was trying to put them to use. Then I showed him all the fields we had, and the things we grow already: corn, trees, mangos, basically anything you want to grow because of the soil and how rich it is. The main producer is sugarcane, and that is what employees most of the town.
We are looking forward to starting our garden and are reading up on grants that will help us.
