Representing Providence

Right now, several SCLT staffers are attending the Community Food Security Coalition’s annual conference in New Orleans, which runs through tomorrow, October 19th. Along with representatives from United Methodist Ministries, SCLT’s community gardens coordinators Liza Sutton and Erika Rumbley were invited to lead a workshop on Sunday entitled “Building Community Food Security through Community Gardens.” Their presentation focused on ways to foster healthy community gardens and promote self-governance among garden leaders. With support from a USDA Community Food Projects grant, education director Leo Pollock, outreach director Jessica Knapp, and development director Susan Sakash were also able to attend the conference. SCLT is pleased to be able to participate in these sorts of gatherings across New England and across the country and share our experience with urban agriculture!
