Last Day of the Fall Session and Potluck!

Saturday, December 15 was our last day of the fall session at Nature Links. We worked and harvested in the garden, took a walk with Juan Fernandez of the City of Miami Parks, made a wonderful salad and enjoyed our end of the year potluck. It was a lovely and eventful day. We also took a ride on the historic train. We look forward to re-starting our Saturdays by the Bay program next year. Stay tuned for updates.


Miami Culinary Institute gave us a wonderful tour

 On Saturday December 8, 2012 we went to the Miami Culinary Institute located in Downtown Miami at the Wolfson Campus. We were given a tour of their impressive facilities by the Director, John Richards. 

We got to see the wonderful view from their first-class restaurant that is on the top floor of the institute.

This is the room where they have wine tasting, cooking demonstrations and international video cooking conferences. John Richards gave the example; they could be video chatting with a farmer in Africa, a chef in Boston, a wine connoseiur in France and another culinary institute here in the U.S.

We sat in on an ice sculpture class!


Finally we took a tour of their organic garden right in the heart of Downtown Miami.

Nature Links goes for a ride on a water taxi with the "Over 21 club" ( Autism Society) December 1, 2012

On Saturday December 1, 2012 Nature Links was invited by the Autism Society to go with their “Over 21 Club” on a Water Taxi ride! We left out of Bayside where we had lunch by the water near a band that was playing. We had a lovely time and would like to send a special thanks to the Autism Society for sponsoring our participants to attend. We look forward to more outings such as this that expand social horizons for our participants.


Saturdays by the Bay October – November Update !

 Hello all, 

We would like to give you a few snapshots of what we have been up to the last few Saturdays.


We have been planting:



We went to the Art Live Exhibition at the Cocnut Grove Exhibition Center: There were dance performances, interactive art pieces and free food to sample. A special thanks to the Lotus house for donating tickets to us so that we could attend.

We got a chance to interact with horses on Virginia Key! A riding club came to visit and they were very informative and kind. We learned about horses in general and some personal stories told by the owners. It was a lovely day.


First day of Saturdays by the Sea – Fall Session

Orientation for Fall Session of Saturdays by the Bay – September 22, 2012

 Last Saturday, the 22 of September Nature Links enjoyed a great turnout of interested folks for our Fall session despite the rainy weather. We enjoyed lunch together and discussed some of our plans for the Fall. We took a tour to the organic garden and the plant nursery where we have over 150 little seedlings started soon to be planted in the garden. We were visited by supporting members of the community, notably- John Richards of the Miami Dade Culinary Institute. We look forward to getting started on the 13th of October.
