Join the Miami Beach Botanic Garden for an exclusive tour through the private gardens and hidden oases of Miami Beach.

The tour is a wonderful way to learn what grows best in our coastal, sub-tropical climate, and to see what you can try in your garden designs. Each homeowner's landscape and gardening style is distinct and personal, offering refreshing respite from the hustle and bustle of daily activities here on the Beach.
During the tour and until 5 p.m. the Garden will host auxiliary events including the traditional Jems & Junque rummage sale, food trucks, a silent auction, and live music. Come discover the city from a gardener's perspective!
