Blair Butterfield, Sunrise Community Garden to Market

Date grant awarded: 4/23/2017

Sunrise School of Miami has one of the most unique gardening programs that is fully integrated into the children’s classrooms and homes by offering a complete garden-to-market initiative.

The children learn throughout the program to apreciate seed propagation, plant needs, soil building, pollinators, beneficial insects and general stewardship of the earth in which we live. In addition, children learn to harvest, market and sell the produce at a weekly after school market.

The Sunrise Community Garden to Market initiative is taught by volunteer Blair Butterfield. It is an initiative to promote local resiliency, encourage healthy eating habits and bring us together as a community. We are located at 14920 SW 67th Avenue, Palmetto Bay, FL.
