Patch of Heaven Sanctuary is a 20-acre non-profit reforestation preserve located in the Redland Agricultural Area in the heart of Miami. It provides sanctuary to trees, bees, birds, butterflies, bats, buildings (historic) and beings (the human kind). Patch is also a sanctioned and recognized agro-forestry and agro-tourism site, which grows and harvests cacao, coffee, vanilla and honey onsite.
Envisioned by a family of committed nature lovers and philanthropists in 2008 with the first 10 acre purchase of the original Matheson family summer forest dwelling, this “hidden gem” preserve is a 15-year reforestation & conservation project that expanded to include a neighboring 10 acre shade container nursery converted into the 20 total acre nature preserve it is today.
Patch’s mission is to reconnect Humans to Nature one mindful walk, one tree and one breath at a time. For more information, please visit www.patchofheavensanctuary.org.
