Urban Farming and Gardening at Dania Beach PATCH (2020)
The Dania Beach PATCH (People's Access to Community Horticulture) is a community Market Garden which grows fresh, healthy, and pesticide-free fruits and vegetables to improve access to these foods for neighboring residents. Volunteers are needed to help work on this urban farm by planting, weeding, watering, and harvesting. The Dania Beach PATCH is currently open Tuesdays, Thursdays & Fridays from 8AM-11AM. Volunteers must arrive by 7:45AM for mandatory temperature checks and activity questions. Please read below fully before signing up. Until the COVID-19 situation is better understood and controlled, there are new requirements to volunteering at Dania Beach PATCH:
- Maximum of 8 volunteers per day
- 18 years-old and up

Volunteers should wear closed-toe shoes (running or tennis shoes are fine – NO Flip Flops) and clothing that can get dirty (yes, there is soil in the PATCH). For added comfort, volunteers should bring a hat and sunscreen.
Water will be available for volunteers at the PATCH. To be environmentally friendly, we ask that volunteers bring their own reusable water bottles as there is ice water available for free refills at the PATCH! There is a volunteer coordinator on site to get folks signed-in and to help those new to gardening/farming.
In the event of inclement weather: we continue to work during light rain, but during heavy downpours or lightning we stop all work at the garden. If this occurs, we will make every attempt to contact volunteers ahead of time.
