(5.19) Mega Tom . . . Mule Team . . . are you going to win at tomatoes this year? Everyone looks forward to the annual Rare & Unusual Plant Sale held at the Southside Community Land Trust (SCLT) City Farm location. Rain or shine . . . but it looks like shine!
If you haven’t been, City Farm is a lush oasis at the corner of West Clifford and Dudley Streets on Providence’s South Side. The Sale features hundreds of varieties of sustainably grown annuals, perennials, and fruit and vegetable plant starts – roughly 20,000 in all. Flats are arranged on tables along pathways that meander among the vegetable beds, chicken coop and compost operations on our working farm. Local performers entertain shoppers with live music. Experienced gardeners are also on hand during the event to answer your gardening questions.
Enjoy live music will you shop with:
Apple Jar/Circle of the Drum/Phil Edmonds and Friends, Karen Isenberg/Dylan Block Harley/the ‘Mericans
City Farm uses organic seeds . . . sown inside their green house over several weeks each spring. Many of the plants are hard, if not impossible, to find at local nurseries. Proceeds from the event support SCLT’s education and community outreach programs.
10am to 2pm, Saturday, May 18 & Sunday, May 19, City Farm, 168 West Clifford Street, (directions)
