In reference to the question about Miami community gardens, there is a
garden in Overtown, which is Miami's poorest area, and, I was told, the
poorest community per capita in the nation.  It has a really rich history,
and used to be a very self-sufficient Black community.  the garden is some
resident's effort to be more self-sufficient again.  it is a beautiful
garden, over an acre, that grows food, herbs and flowers for the residents
of Overtown and employs permaculture techniques.  I dont know how you could
contact the organizers, except to just go to Overtown and ask around. the
folks at the garden are very welcoming, very smart, and its a really cool
project.  i'm sure they would love the help.
take care,
