Signs of Spring in the City Farm Greenhouse

dscf2145Rich Pederson, our City Farm Manager, has been busy for weeks preparing for the coming growing season. City Farm is a 3/4 acre farm in the middle of South Providence that grows a lot of food – from salad greens to hearty kale and collards, fragrant herbs to cherry tomatoes. Rich has been in the greenhouse ’round the clock marrying the soil, water, and sunlight to the seeds that will sprout into the healthy fruits and vegetables we love to eat.

Some of these plant starts will be set aside for your garden! Every May, City Farm hosts the celebrated Rare & Unusual Plant Sale, now entering its 17th year. The Plant Sale is just around the corner, so Rich is working overtime to prepare the plant starts that will be available for purchase during this special springtime event!

17th Rare & Unusual Plant Sale

at City Farm, the corner of Dudley and West Clifford Streets in South Providence

March 16th & 17th from 10am – 2pm

This year, Rich says that there will be “More Veggies than Ever!” A recent trip to the greenhouse proves that Rich is committed to his promise. Hundreds and hundreds of tiny green sprouts abound!

Over the next few weeks, Rich will be providing us with exclusive City Farm Greenhouse updates, along with his own tips about growing a high yield in your own garden! Stay tuned…
