In 2013, the Miami Branch of the USGBC and the City of Miami Beach combined forces. The City continued to host their Family Service Day events at North Shore Open Space Park, and USGBC Miami led the effort to bring these projects into the schools to both grow the collective effort and bring a stronger sense of sustainability into the initiative. Over the years, that partnership has been able to provide schools such as Biscayne Elementary, Miami Beach Senior High School, and the Feinberg-Fisher K-8 campus beautification projects through tree plantings, native butterfly gardens, organic vegetable gardens, and beautifully decorated raised planter beds.
The celebration for all of the Miami Beach Family Service Day projects will take place at North Shore Open Space Park (85th Street and Collins Avenue), beginning at noon. Various community organizations will be at the Park, and Shake Shack will be there feeding everyone for the day. There is metered street parking available, but attendees are encouraged to carpool.
