Heroes Unite-Enchanted forest

Alice Billman's organization Heroes Unite created a community garden in Griffing Park where locals can plant fruits and vegetables based on what's in season. Through the organization's Giving Back Green program, 17 small plots of land were created in the area of the park called Enchanted Forest, 1725 NE 135 St. in North Miami. The community gardeners will work with students and professors from FIU to maintain the garden.Please find an article about the opening of the garden in Miami Herald here.
