Dania Beach, FL– The Dania Beach PATCH Farm and Garden invites you to attend its Harvest Festival on Saturday, November 18, 2017 from 9:00AM - 1:00PM and celebrate harvest time at the PATCH. This free festival features garden tours, a free food giveaway, unique vendors, and the first opportunity of the season to grab your Holiday dinner vegetables fresh from the garden. This tradition honors the bounty of the Garden, which has provided local, organically-grown produce for Broward County for nearly 9 years. There will be plenty of fun activities for family and children of all ages.
“We love the opportunity to share such a time-honored tradition as harvest with our customers and local residents. It is truly a celebration of the beginning of new life and the start of the next yield of fresh and organically-grown produce for the community. We are also excited about our partnership with Ark of the City, who has graciously provided 200-250 bags of free food for the community,” states Kathleen Weekes, Dania Beach Community Redevelopment Agency Interim Director.
