Miami Beach Botanical Garden's mission is to provide free public access to a subtropical botanical oasis. We offer environmental programs for all ages, preserve a habitat for native plants and pollinators, and provide visitors with a peaceful place to relish in nature. Our year round calendar of cultural programs inspires the artist in all of us, from music, visual arts and performances. Visitors come from around the world and around the block.
It's been quite a year of great programing and activities for the community. The Garden has prevailed from last year's hurricane thanks to friends with funds and lots of care and hard work. Please help make it possible to offer more educational and fun experiences in our Miami Beach Tropical Oasis.
The Garden gates open to reveal a natural oasis filled with native botanicals, rare specimens of palms and a habitat for birds and butterflies. Welcoming the community to awaken all their senses with sights and scents of nature, music and art for all ages throughout the year.
Summer Art Camp at the Garden co-sponsored by the Sunflower Society hosted nearly 400 families totaling almost 1000 kids throughout the summer program of 2018.
Miami Beach Botanical Garden is Miami-Dade's first and only compost hub.

Art in the Park with Marie
Marie Kolbert is a licensed pre-school teacher in her home country of Sweden, where she has been involved in arts her whole life. After playing soccer for the National Team in Sweden, she arrived in the U.S. on a soccer scholarship at Lynn University in Boca Raton in 1996. There she received her Bachelor of Arts in Visual Design. In 2000, she moved to Miami Beach where she still resides.
Marie has been hosting her Art in the Park program at public parks around the city, and now the Miami Beach Botanical Garden welcomes Marie on the last Sunday of every month (unless a date change is indicated in the online calendar).
Art plays an important role in children's lives, and this free program will give your children a chance for their creativity to soar! Toddlers up to eight year olds will enjoy creating something new each month out in the lawn under the shade of the Banyan tree. Supplies included, just bring your imagination!
