Involving Kids in Our Communities

This evening from 6:00 to 8:00, we’ll be attending Raising Community Minded Kids at AS220, located at 115 Empire Street in downtown Providence. The event is organized by KidoInfo and is designed to start a conversation about ways that we can engage youth in meaningful activities to promote social responsibility and positive change. A number of local organizations will be attending to provide parents and families with information about their work and chances to get involved—be sure to stop by if you can and look for our table!

We’ll be there to let people know about our free Plant Providence workshops this summer on Affordable Backyard Gardening (June 11th) and Cooking and Gardening with Your Kids (Aug. 27th, co-taught with the school nutrition experts over at Kids First RI). We also have a big Community Land Trust 30th birthday party and bring-your-own-picnic for families coming up on July 17th; it will take place out at our 50-acre Urban Edge Farm out in Cranston and feature a concert by children’s singer/songwriter Bill Harley as well as hay rides, face painting, and other activities. For more information, visit our picnic page (soon to be updated with ticket information). Hope to see you at some of these events over the summer!
