Doesn't matter if it is flowers or trees. Every time you try to grow something it dies. Brown thumb or not, you still dream of owning orchards bursting with fruit and tending expansive, flourishing gardens that would make the British jealous. It's okay to fantasize. Better yet, mingle with some authentic gardeners and maybe pick up a few useful tips during a Field Trip sponsored by the Fruit and Spice Park (24801 SW 187th Ave., Homestead). Today from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. park director/ naturalist Chris Rollins will guide you on a tour of Kerry's Bromeliads, a large commercial nursery. Then it's off to take a look at Brook's Tropicals, a packing house. There you'll see how fruits and veggies are commercially sorted and packed for shipping. You'll no doubt be inspired to dig into the dirt the moment you get home. The fee for the trip is $15. Space is limited, so call 305-247-5727 for reservations. (NK)

You may (wrongly) consider Bob Dylan a tired, irrelevant, raspy-voiced bore. But once upon a time Dylan was an angry, vital performer who turned the music world on its head, and filmmaker D.A. Pennebaker (Monterey Pop, The War Room) has the celluloid to prove it. His film Don't Look Back chronicles the scraggly folkster's spring 1965 tour of England. Pennebaker's innovative fly-on-the-wall technique, which set a new standard for documentaries, allows Dylan to do the talking. Watch him ridicule reporters, pal around with Joan Baez and Alan Price, and sing early songs such as "All I Really Want to Do" and "It's All Right, Ma (I'm Only Bleeding)." This is Dylan originally unplugged. Catch Don't Look Back today and tomorrow at the Alliance Cinema (927 Lincoln Rd., Miami Beach). Tickets cost six dollars for the evening shows, four for matinees. Call 305-531-8504 or see "Showtimes," page 52. (
