Garden 368, A.B. Michael

Posted By lynette vargas, Thursday, December 12, 2013

A.B. Michael Garden, 13760 sw 160 lane Miami, FL.

This Garden is dedicated to the late A.B. Michael and there contribution to our state. The Michael family came to the Indian River area in the 1880s and planted citrus on the island (Orchid Island). Alfred operated a trading schooner on the river in the early years and then opened a general store. He consolidated his holdings in citrus with others to form the Deerfield Groves and helped organize the Indian River Citrus League and the Florida Citrus Mutual in Lakeland. He was instrumental in marketing and branding the "Indian River Citrus” labeling and was voted the "Dean of Citrus.” Because of all the great contributions the Michael family gave to our state I would be honored to name this garden after him.
