Community Gardens Take Root in North Miami


Alice Billman wants residents in North Miami to watch their gardens grow -- even if they live in an apartment.

Billman's organization Heroes Unite created a community garden in Griffing Park where locals can plant fruits and vegetables based on what's in season.

"We need to make our city more sustainable and more progressive, and provide an environment of wellness for our residents," Billman said. "Right now if you want wholesome organic fresh food, you better be making a good salary. People who are lower income should have the same access to wholesome food."
