Community Gardens Tour and Potluck

Interested in learning more about Providence’s community garden scene? Southside Community Land Trust (SCLT) invites you to attend a free and open Community Gardens Tour and Potluck on September 17 from 10am-1:30pm. The tour will meet and finish at Roger Williams Park Community Garden (located next to the Botanical Center) and will go to 3 other gardens: Davey Lopes, Glenham and. Cadillac Drive. For those who want to go by bike, meet at Davey Lopes at 10:30am! It’ll be a great chance to get acquainted with the diversity of gardens available in Providence, as each has its own vibe and unique character.

The tour will be led by SCLT’s Cindy Llamas (Community Growers Coordinator) and Liza Sutton (Community Growers Network Director) as a part of an effort to expand the Community Growers Network (CGN), a voluntary, community garden-led coalition. Launched by Southside Community Land Trust and community partners in 2009, the Network includes over 35 community gardens in Providence and Pawtucket and is an exciting opportunity for gardens to work together to share resources, information, and experience.

At the end of the tour, there will be a Harvest Potluck from 12-1:30pm at Roger Williams Park Community Garden. This is also free and open to anyone who wants to enjoy a delicious garden-fresh meal and meet other community gardeners.

Just register for the Garden Tour with Cindy Llamas at 401-273-9418 ext.30 or
