Although Mother's Day has come and gone, we should never overlook the eminent founding matriarchs of Coconut Grove. As we explore the verdant South Grove, get to know a varied, sometimes offbeat cast of women who devoted their lives to the community's well-being. Hear the endeavors of rugged pioneer and first school teacher Flora McFarlane. Discover the odyssey Eleuthera Islander Mariah Brown, among the very first Bahamian settlers in The Grove, faced as she left for an unfamiliar land. Follow the battles of fervent civil-rights activists Elizabeth Virrick and Alice Wainwright. As we stop at the quaint home of Marjory Stoneman Douglas, learn how her eloquence and determination alerted a nation about the plight of the Florida Everglades. Throughout the tour, view the early summer flowering trees and plants that cover the neighborhood in a brilliant tapestry of color.
