Rhody Recognition

We were delighted the other day to welcome Edible Rhody editor Genie McPherson Trevor and publisher John Schenck to our offices. They had come to present us with our 2011 Local Hero award—their reader’s choice for non-profit organization, announced earlier this year! We are very proud of this distinction, which feels especially meaningful given that it comes during the Community Land Trust’s 30th anniversary year of helping people grow food in Providence.

Our work is profiled in the spring issue of the magazine—click here to read the wonderful article written by writer and friend of the organization Christine Chitnis! Thank you again to the staff and readers of Edible Rhody for this honor and for their commitment to supporting homegrown and locally prepared food across the state.

Several SCLT staff members were on hand to accept the award (from left to right: AmeriCorps VISTA Skye Hibbard-Swanson, outreach director Jessica Knapp, development assistant Michelle Walker, board member Vera Wayne, director of operations Liana Cassar, executive director Katherine Brown, director of development Susan Sakash, and Community Growers Network director Liza Sutton).
