Saturday: Lead-Safe Gardening Workshop Amelia Rose of the Environmental Justice League:

Want Your Own Home Garden?

Home gardens provide healthy food for your family and can save you money.  But here in Providence, if you want to grow food in your backyard, it’s important to make sure your soil is safe from lead paint contamination, which can be extremely harmful to your health. Come learn how to create your own safe and healthy backyard gardens. You’ll learn what lead hazards exist in Providence, how to test your soil to make sure it’s safe, and how to create a garden — even if you don’t have a backyard.  The workshop includes a short walk and will end with refreshments.

Brought to you by English for Action, Southside Community Land Trust, Childhood Lead Action Project, and the Environmental Justice League of Rhode Island. Contact Amelia at 383.7441 or for more information.

2pm to 4pm, Saturday, 122 Manton Avenue, Room 710, Olneyville
