(3.2) The Southside Community Land Trust invites the public to its 4th Annual Urban Agriculture Spring Kickoff on Saturday. This will be a food-growing event that gets community members geared up for the coming growing season. It will be hosted at the Roger Williams Park Botanical Center where attendees can celebrate urban agriculture with fellow food-growers.
The event will feature light refreshments, showcasing ingredients that can be grown in the garden, and tables with tips from experts on composting, seed starting, water conservation with rain barrels, seed saving, urban bee and chicken keeping, maple syrup tapping and mushrooming. SCLT will also raffle off some fabulous prizes, including a gift certificate to the Plant Sale and SCLT membership combo, and a tree start, courtesy of Groundwork Providence.
