Visitors are welcome! The garden has a see-through fence where the current crops and garden components can be seen. Twenty-two Miramar Community Garden Volunteers tend the garden on a daily basis at different hours of the day.

Eco-friendly flip-flops

Made In USAEnviromental Awards

Okabashi  - Eco-friendly and Made in the U.S.A

Okabashi's colorful and eco-friendly flip-flops have caught the eye of television and magazine reporters across the United States for the company's commitment to the environment while producing fashion-forward footwear. Deep in its manufacturing facility in Buford, Georgia, the family-run operation has been transforming recycled materials into quality foot-cushioning sandals since 1984.
Designers mold recycled plastics and a comfortable and vegan-friendly microplast material into the therapeutic shoes—which boast arch support and features such as massage beads—creating a sandal that has even been endorsed by the American Chiropractic Association. Each shoe is durable, washable, waterproof, and repellent to most carnivorous plants. Once wearers are finished with their footwear, they can ship worn sandals back to the Okabashi factory, where the company recycles them into new products.

Revolution -- A film about changing the world.


Revolution is a film about changing the world. The true-life adventure of Rob Stewart, this follow-up to his acclaimed Sharkwater documentary continues his remarkable journey; one that will take him through 15 countries over four years, and where he'll discover that it's not only sharks that are in grave danger - it's humanity itself.
In an effort to uncover the truth and find the secret to saving the ecosystems we depend on for survival, Stewart embarks on a life-threatening adventure. From the coral reefs in Papua New Guinea and deforestation in Madagascar to the largest and most destructive environmental project in history in Alberta, Canada, he reveals that all of our actions are interconnected and that environmental degradation, species loss, ocean acidification, pollution and food/water scarcity are reducing the Earth's ability to house humans. How did this happen, and what will it take to change the course that humanity has set itself on?
