Miami Culinary Institute’s Organic Culinary Garden  

Official Grand Opening on July 14th at 10:00 am

Gabriele Marewski, in a newly formed partnership with Natural Greenscapes, brings the ambiance and magic of Paradise Farms to the new Culinary Garden for the new Miami Culinary Institute at the Miami Dade College Wolfson Campus. All of these partners are very excited about being on the cutting edge of effecting change in how culinary students come to know their ingredients: a new Seed to Soil initiative.

The garden has over 40 different fruits, 30 different herbs and a variety of delicious tropical shrubs and edible flowers.  This living classroom brings to the students a unique opportunity to be directly involved in planting and harvesting their own food. Food scraps from the Institute’s kitchen will be composted and used in the garden for a true “soil to soil” sustainable process.

Gabriele will also teach a class in Fall as part of the Institute’s Enthusiasts Program, as the garden becomes the platform for growing culinary gardeners (www.miamidadeculinary.com).

The garden is located on the southeast corner of NE 6th St. & NE 1st Ave.  Please join us on Thursday, July 14th at  10 am for the Grand Opening!

Free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
