Miami-Dade Community College
April of 2002 was a flurry of activity due to planning,
coordinating, and installing several FYN Demonstration Landscapes around the
County. Our nicest
Demonstration Landscape to date is the one at the
Miami-Dade Community College Environmental Center (MDCC-EC), which is located on the west side of
the MDCC Kendall Campus.

Stacy Mandell of the MDCC-EC, Audrey Ordenes of Citizens for a
Better South Florida, and FYN personnel planned and coordinated this project. We would like to thank H&H Land Clearing
of Homestead for donating the rock plow that was used to crush the solid limestone rock into
a workable soil.
promoted the first installation date, 27 April, as a Family and Volunteer Day, and we got
numerous volunteers to help us plant. Ms. Maria Jordan then brought a group of students
from South Dade Senior High
School to continue the installation of the
smaller plants on 22 May. We completed planting (finally!) on 10 August,
thanks to another great group of volunteers.
