Urban Farming Events — Four City Locations
(4.8) The Southside Community Land Trust (SCLT) will be hosting four neighborhood Urban Agriculture Kick Off events across the city at four sites in Providence’s West End, South Side, Olneyville, and East Side neighborhoods.
Each site will have an agriculture expert on hand to answer questions about chemical-free gardening and how to get the most out of small plots, containers and backyard gardens. SCLT will be giving away non-GMO, organic, and heirloom vegetable, herb, and flower seeds, and share helpful tips on how to have a successful growing season.
New SCLT members and those renewing for 2017, including anyone who joins that day, can bring home up to 50 gallons of free, high-quality, organic compost. They will just need to show a membership card and bring large containers to cart it away.
The four locations are the community gardens at 60 Sessions Street, 40 Florence Street, and 16 Ring Street; and the Davey Lopes Recreation Center at 227 Dudley Street. (Rain date: April 9)
Free and open to the public, Saturday, April 8, 11am to 1pm, Urban Agricultural Kick-Off
