Miramar launching community garden

Miramar kicked off its community garden Thursday night with a meeting for its volunteers. Soon, the city will hold a groundbreaking for the community garden, located at Fairway Park 3700 Largo Drive. The garden will be a place designed for likeminded individuals to grow and maintain fruits and vegetables that will one day find their way into the homes of Miramar families.

While you may have missed the first meeting, volunteers are still sought to serve a few hours a week.

The City of Miramar is so proud to invite you to become a part of making the world a little greener while giving back to your community, reads a news release on the garden.

Volunteers will be asked to serve a few hours a week. For information about becoming a volunteer, please complete an online application at .
