New Issue of Edible South Florida

ediblewinter2011It’s time again to pick up the new issue of edible South Florida. Can you believe it’s been a year since the magazine launched?

The Winter 2011 issue has stories on classic cocktails, the risky future of Florida citrus, making Argentinean asado with blogger Gaucho Garcia, how to dry fruits, Sol Sundays and lots more.

I profiled Troy Gardens, an horticultural program at Troy Academy — a high school for at-risk teens that have gone through the juvenile justice system or have failed at regular schools.

You can find Ben Thacker, the program’s director, and a few of his studentsĀ at the Roots in the City Market (Wednesdays 1:00 – 3:30 p.m. at the corner of NW 2nd Avenue and 10th Street) selling the produce they grow at the school. Stop by to visit them or keep up with Troy’s progress on Facebook.

The new issue of edible South Florida is now available at Whole Foods. Until then, check out the online edition.

  1. Go Ben! I helped build a butterfly garden at Troy a few months back, good times.

  2. Love your story on Troy Gardens, Paula!

  3. Hi Paula,
    Just about a month ago I tried to find this magazine at Whole Foods. Last issue I was able to get was summer 2010. Think the magazine is great but they did not know anything about it. Glad to see your article that another issue is available.
    We finally got to Indomania and I see that Check Please is going to feature it on one of their upcoming programs.

  4. Hi Paula –
    I’m glad to find you! The farmer’s market you were asking about is in Naples, Florida where we live.
    I’m happy to know about “Edible South Florida”….sounds very interesting!

  5. Linda – Glad to find you too. I saw your pictures and thought to myself where in South Florida is this? Thanks for stopping by.

  6. I’m a recent transplant from Chicago and I’ve been looking for a mag on the local food scene…I guess I’ve found it now. Will have to pick one up at Whole Foods. Excited to read your article!
