We are using our garden fox as a symbol for our jump into 2017! We feel wiser, more determined than ever and, most of all, thankful for the wonderful volunteers whom have stuck by our side in thick and thin. As a nonprofit, the gifts and thank yous are not in monetary terms but instead in sincere expressions of gratitude and the joy of good work done and friendships formed. Our garden projects look amazing, we have hosted many litter cleanups and we look forward to moving to the next levels with education and signage in our Park spaces. At the Oleta Urban corner parkland, we hope to plant at least the uplands area with natives by the end of April - Earth Month, with many native trees included!
We would like to leave you or welcome you (in 2017) with a link to a 2016 Biscayne Times article on Oleta with the Friends projects included and Friends board member quotes as well. Enjoy:
