At the center of a cluster of apartment complexes in Miami’s liberty city lies a thriving garden.

On any given day, you can find long-time resident Nicole Fowles and her granddaughters tending to the garden. The grandmother is the Garden Manager at the sprawling urban farm which was set up by the non-profit organization Health in the Hood.

“I can just walk out my door if I want a salad. If I want to make a sweet potato pie, I have the sweet potatoes right here. And, so do my neighbors,” said Fowles.
