Urban Agriculture Spring Kickoff

Rich Pederson, City Farm Steward, leading a seed starting workshop at last year's urban ag. kickoff

Southside Community Land Trust invites you to its 3rd annual Urban Agriculture Spring Kickoff, a day of family-friendly, food-growing fun on Saturday, March 3rd from 1:00-4:00pm. The kickoff will be hosted at the Roger Williams Park Botanical Center – a sunny, warm, indoor garden full of lush plant life (it’s the perfect taste of spring!)

The event will feature live music, light refreshments, cooking demonstrations and a seed swap (bring your seeds). Check out the line up of exciting educational workshops:

* Planning and Canning

* Organic Pest Control

* Maple Sugaring

* Seed Starting

* Water Barrels/ Harvesting

* Growing Year Round

* Seed Saving and Seed Swap

Families are welcome; young “gardeners in training” can enjoy a kid’s corner with games and art projects.  SCLT will also hold a silent auction offering people the chance to bid on some great items, like garden design consultations with expert growers, a massage, a catered dinner party for 6, and other fun prizes.
Admission is $5 at the door (free for children and members of the Providence Community Growers Network). All proceeds will benefit Southside Community Land Trust’s Community Growers Network, which supports over 700 families with resources, education, and community-building they need to grow an abundance of healthy food!
