Volunteers Needed: Get Your Hands a Little Dirty!

Fabulous volunteers at this year's Greenwich St. garden build-out

Are you interested in gardening? Community building? Do you want to meet other like-minded people while making Providence a greener place? Join SCLT in a Community Garden Build Out to expand the Potters Ave. Community Garden.  This project will provide the surrounding Providence community access to garden plots/land, where they can grow fresh, healthy food to feed their families. As a volunteer, you are an essential partner in creating community food systems where locally produced, affordable, and healthy food is available to all.

Who: Southside Community Land Trust is looking for 30 volunteers to help build a community garden in Providence. All are welcome! We are looking for 4 solid volunteers to help Oct. 11 and then additional 10 volunteers from Oct 12-14 and possibly extending into the following week. SCLT is providing lunch!!

What: As a volunteer, you will need to commit a minimum of 4 hours, be able to lift heavy items (such as lumber and soil) and be a team player. Gardening and/or carpentry experience is a plus!

When: Tuesday, October 11 through Friday, October 14 from 10:30am to 2:30pm.

Where: Community Garden & Park near intersection of Prairie and Potters Avenues, Providence, RI. 02905
