Adopted Urban Center Districts (and Areas)

Community Gardens

Currently in Miami-Dade County, community gardens are only allowed in the 12 areas designated as Urban Center Districts. A code amendment would be required to allow for them in other areas.

To see whether a property is zoned to allow for Community Gardens, use the County's Property Search. After entering an address or folio number, you can find the zoning district information under the "Additional Information" tab.

According to the Standard Urban Center District Regulations, a Community Garden is considered open space set aside for the cultivation and harvesting of produce such as flowers, fruits and vegetables. In addition,

  • Cultivated and harvested products may only be sold at permitted farmers markets and at grocery stores;
  • The raising or sale of livestock or poultry is prohibited;
  • Only hand-held tools shall be permitted in the cultivation and harvesting process. Use of heavy agriculture equipment is prohibited;
  • All tools, equipment and products used to grow and harvest plant material shall be stored in an enclosed structure subject to the Building Placement Standards -- see Sec. 33-284.85 on page 10 of the regulations;
  • Gardens shall only be tended between sunrise and sunset.
