Home Gardens & Landscapes

The Homeowner Urban Horticulture Program offers educational workshops on home and community gardening, as well as expertise in proper cultural practices, pest and disease management, water issues, environmental landscape management, and volunteer development. The program is closely linked to the Master Gardener and Florida Yards & Neighborhoods programs.

For plant clinic question please email a Master Gardener at or call 305-679-0222.

Community Gardens

A community garden is a collaborative greenspace in which the participants share in both the maintenance and the rewards. For Miami-Dade residents, we offer additional publications and we can help guide you in your community garden project.
