Urban Agriculture Spring Kickoff in 1 week!

SCLT's Urban Agriculture Spring Kickoff always feature delicious cooking demos, such as how to make nime chow, a southeast Asian spring roll.

We’re only a week and a day away from the Urban Agriculture Spring Kickoff, hosted by SCLT’s Providence Community Growers Network! Word on the street is that one of the silent auction prizes is a delicious dinner for 6 at City Farm, cooked by the head chef of a prestigious restaurant in Jamestown.

Join us for our 3rd annual Urban Agriculture Spring Kickoff, a day of family-friendly, food-growing fun on Saturday, March 3rd from 1:00-4:00pm at the Roger Williams Park Botanical Center. You can come enjoy live music, light refreshments, cooking demos, and take part in a seed swap (bring your seeds). Our lineup of educational workshops includes:  Planning for 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!
