COMPOST

Last week, we pulled off the first citywide compost delivery to community gardens! This is a great example of The Providence Community Garden Network supporting gardeners by offering bulk material orders. In the future, we’d love to offer bulk orders for seeds, organic fertilizer, cover crop seed, & more. Together, we’re helping community gardeners do what they do best- work together & grow food!

Thanks to Southside Community Land Trust & the Providence Parks Department, compost only cost $5 per garden plot & hundreds of community gardeners across the city pitched it. It was amazing to see Parks Department trucks buzzing around the city full of compost for our gardens. We can’t wait to see nearly 600 community garden plots across Providence bursting with food this summer.
