The Old Dixie Nursery provides pre-vocational training in horticulture and nursery operations for individuals with intellectual disabilities served by Sunrise in South Miami-Dade. The essential training helps those served to learn marketable talents but also helps to improved life skills such as vocabulary and communication, raises personal engagement and motor skills as well as stimulates sensory perception.
We are all grateful to Coral Gables’ student volunteers for stepping forward to provide much needed help to people with developmental disabilities. We also appreciate their continued help in getting the word out to fellow Coral Gables students about Sunrise’s on-going beautification project opportunities. We look forward to working with PAL and other Miami-Dade students again in the near future! Check out their fantastic work and GREAT JOB TEAM CB-PAL!!
