Where, the concerned citizen may ask, can one find a natural retreat from the pressures of city life while perhaps learning a little something in the process? Offering just such a sanctum for over 50 years is Miami Beach Botanical Gardens, a verdant grove of native and international horticulture promoting environmental enjoyment and stewardship to one of our city’s most sought-after districts.
