The farm is hidden behind tall trees and a short wall. But when you walk closer, you can start to see the main house painted blue and coral-pink.
There are six small cottages on one side of the house, and sitting right over Miami’s Little River, is a two-story boathouse from the early 1900s.
“(When) you’re in here, you’re not in Miami. (But) you can walk two feet out the door and you’re in Miami. What could be better?” said Tamara Hendershot, owner of the Magic City Farm.
Earth Learning, a Miami-based sustainability group which focuses on food and agriculture, hosted the third annual Greater Everglades Community Food Summit, which ended last week. The summit included a tour of local farms and gardens.
The farm tour visited Frank Macaluso's Kendall home. Macaluso has turned his lawn, which sits on an approximately ¾-acre lot, into an edible garden.
