A 22-acre farm, farm-to-table café, market & 145 LEED-certified green homes — that’s what you’ll find at The Farm @ Verde Gardens, a unique facility built on part of the former Homestead Air Force Base. While the farm provides fresh, locally-grown produce to Miami consumers, the housing — developed in partnership with the Homeless Trust of Miami-Dade County — provides residences for homeless men and women who are given the chance to heal while developing new skills and training. It’s a true everybody-wins scenario, with benefits for the community and the environment. Wanna help? It’s easy. Just purchase their produce at Homestead Harvest Market or support the cause with a donation; Earth-Learning.org.
