Each quarter, we are happy to showcase a local artist in our Clearwater café. The art is available for purchase at our Clearwater location. Each artist chooses a charity to donate 20% of their sale.

Winter 2023 Group Showcase:
Creative Artist Guild of Dunedin

The purpose of the Creative Artists’ Guild is to bring together artists to share experiences, expertise and provide for the exchange of artistic ideas and information.

We work together to develop & promote the Dunedin artistic community as well as by arranging exhibits, shows, and other means to further the purpose of local artists. Our group was founded in 1970 as the Dunedin Art Guild and evolved into the Creative Artists Guild in 1978. Since then, it has remained one of the area’s most active fine arts organizations. Membership is open to all those interested in the fine arts, attending meetings, and participating in the many other activities of the Guild. The membership represents a progressive group of artists and their supporters who share a mutual interest and encourage public awareness in the art field.

We hope you will enjoy the works of the 11 artists featured in this Winter 2023 Group Showcase. Whether you are an artist or art lover, there is truly something here for everyone.

community donations & events

The Patch is proud to be involved with countless local donations & events. 

local food banks

Nature’s Food Patch endeavors to reduce food waste & help end hunger by donating to several local food banks seven days a week. The two local food banks we donate to are:

• Homeless Empowerment Program

• Dunedin Cares Food Pantry

In addition to our daily donations, The Patch hosts several food drives each year to benefit these amazing organizations. To stay up-to-date on how you can help feed our community healthy & nutritious food, sign up for our  newsletters HERE.

Clearwater Marine Aquarium

One way we support local is by providing food donations to our friends over at Clearwater Marine Aquarium (home of the late celebrity dolphin, Winter, who starred in the movie Dolphin Tale)!

This is Vlad, the Russian tortoise who receives the donated food. He is an herbivore and we help feed him a diet of dark, leafy greens, bell peppers, carrots & zucchini. Vlad joined the CMA team when he was about 2-3 years old & can live up to 40 years. He is an animal ambassador that has been part of the CMA’s Education Center since 2014. Through Vlad, the Clearwater Marine Aquarium can teach anatomical differences of the 3 types of turtles while also teaching students & guests how to protect local species. To learn more about Vlad or the aquarium, be sure to check out their page!
