Urban Oasis Project

This morning I got this email from an organization I just joined called the Urban Oasis Project:

"We are so excited that LOTS of people are interested in growing their own food! We also encourage planting for butterflies, bees, birds, and other wildlife. Miami can be a green city! An urban oasis! Your yard can be an urban oasis! All of us together will make one big habitat for the pollinators and beneficial wildlife we need to be a sustainable city. Upcoming events, sorry for the short notice, but if you can't make this one, there will be others, and we will post pictures on the Facebook group: 1. April 9, 8:00 AM: We will be creating a raised bed vegetable garden tomorrow for a family in Liberty City with a new baby.2. April 9, 6:00 PM: Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden, 6:00 to 9:30 pm, Thursday Nights at Fairchild. We will be collecting used tools and gardening supplies (no chemicals please) for needy families in Liberty City and elsewhere who wish to plant a food garden, but don't have the resources to begin. Please come out and enjoy the Garden at night, go on a walking tour of night-blooming plants, and watch the movie Hoot!, a nature story based on the book by Carl Hiassen. www.fairchildgarden.org for details Every Thursday night in April, we will be at Fairchild collecting tools and garden miscellany for needy families to garden. In the meantime, please visit www.urbanoasisproject.org and our Facebook group. (Go to Facebook, put Urban Oasis Project in the search field. The group is open to anyone, and there are many photos with comments and how to info. You can contribute your own experience, too!)"
