Harvest Party: Just a Few More Words…

Southside Community Land Trust is pleased to announce that the following restaurants will be cooking up fresh, locally grown produce for partygoers: Al Forno, CAV, Chez Pascal, Cook and Brown, Edgewood Café, Friendship Café, Genesis Center, Julian’s, La Laiterie, Local 121, New Rivers, Nicks on Broadway, Pho Paradise, El Rancho Grande, and Sunnyside Café. The event will also feature a cupcake landscape of one of our gardens from Sin Cupcakes and Cold Fusion Gelato.

SCLT’s Community Gardeners will also be on hand to share the “fruits of their labor” – their own locally grown fruits and vegetables – with party guests. All attendees will take home a goodie bag of garden fresh tomatoes, greens, herbs, and more.

Southside Community Land Trust’s Harvest Party: Celebrating 30 Years of Plant to Plate brings together over 300 people who have helped change the look – and taste – of urban food production in Rhode Island.

Tickets are $100 each. Proceeds from the 30th Harvest Party support SCLT’s core program activities, including expansion of the Providence Community Growers Network to help people grow more food in all neighborhoods of Providence.

ABOUT SOUTHSIDE COMMUNITY LAND TRUST’s 30th ANNIVERSARY — STILL GROWING AFTER ALL THESE YEARS.
Inspired by our forward-thinking founders, many dedicated community partners, staff and board members, donors and supporters, farmers, and community gardeners over the past thirty years have carried forth the vision to:

• Preserve and transform 55 acres of inner-city and suburban land into productive,
beautiful, & safe gardens and farms in Greater Providence while revitalizing surrounding
neighborhoods

• Facilitate the creation of 35+ community gardens around the city enabling more than 750
families to raise food their own food and improve their own health and nutrition.

• Put hundreds of thousands of savings back in the pockets of low-income growers who
are eating from their gardens (Over $4,000,000 in 30 years!)

• Introduce thousands of kids to the wonder of growing and eating their own healthy food

Create a sense of place – bridging nationalities, ages, and incomes – where community
can flourish.
