Verde Gardens

Located at 12550 SW 282nd Street in South-Miami Dade at the former Homestead Air Force Base, Verde Gardens combines 145 LEED-certified "green" townhomes for formerly homeless residents and a 22-acre organic farm component which includes a produce nursery and an on-site public farmer's market. With a range of supportive services offered that integrate innovative farming techniques with much-needed job and life skills, residents are given the opportunity to earn a living working at the Farm at Verde Gardens and the Homestead Harvest Market – which is open to the public year-round on Fridays and Saturdays.
