Miami Beach Botanical Garden celebrates Earth Day
Mother Earth Day
Celebrate our common Mother with several family-friendly activities throughout the day such as a showcase of sculptures and other works by local artists made from repurposed materials. Short environmental films will be playing from 10 a.m. to noon in the Butterfly Room, and families with children ages 4-12 can attend a session of art projects and eco-learning opportunities from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Meldy Hernandez, our Mommy and Me teacher, will host a family yoga and dance class for the little ones (ages 1-3) to introduce them to the wonders of nature using song, dance, yoga and world music. 11:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m. There is a $12 fee to participate. Call the Garden at 305.673.7256 ext. 201 to reserve your spot now.
End the day with a nighttime garden gathering and yoga class from 7 to 11 p.m. This event is in conjunction with Sustainatopia, to benefit the Miami Beach Botanical Garden.
Glow Yoga and Garden Gathering
Find your roots and celebrate our universal heritage as a human race with this unique fuse of glow-in-the-dark yoga and an outdoor garden social. From 7 to 8 p.m. enjoy local DJ’s and live music acts, as well as grassroots vendors from the Miami area showcasing homegrown food clothing and art. From 8 to 10 p.m. meet on the patio for a special glow-yoga class and meditation taught by Terra-Nova and Cristal Gould, ending with a sound bowl healing. After the class, mix and mingle under the sea grape tree and join in the drum circle for more festivities and live art and music. All are welcome to this free event.
Those who would like to glow with us in the yoga class can preregister for $25 or pay $30 at the door. Everyone is encouraged to wear anything that glows or shines, to honor our common home we all share together.
