South Florida Client – Diana Perez
Meet the woman behind the magic. Diana Perez is a young entrepreneur from Miami, with a strong background and passion for sustainability and agriculture. In 2019 Diana started her own company, Magic City Gardens, based in North Miami with a main goal in mind: to develop community-supported agriculture.
Originally, her company offered a membership-based service that provides clients a weekly box of fresh seasonal vegetables. During COVID-19 she identified an opportunity to start the “Farm Your Yard” service. Where Magic City Gardens staff go to your home, do an initial assessment of the yard, share best practices and recommendations, and deliver clients with a full report and proposal on how to start your own garden.
Diana was referred to Prospera by SBDC at FIU, as part of our mutual partnership with The Miami Foundation. Since then, Prospera has worked with Diana to establish her start-up business priorities and identifying business opportunities. Her company was recently awarded with a Prospera business grant and an accounting assessment to help her establish best practices in creating the proper framework for her business from its inception.
