Southside Community Land Trust to receive National Garden Club Award of Excellence

We are pleased to announce that Southside Community Land Trust  is receiving a National Garden Club Award of Excellence. SCLT Executive Director Katherine Brown will be receiving the award on the organization’s behalf. Because of the timing of the award, Katherine will be present only on the Sunday of the Plant Sale (May 20th).

Thank you to the RI Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc. to have submitted such a kind nomination for us!

Transcript is as follows:

“The Southside Community Land Trust brings great pride to the RI Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc., as its goals and purpose are very much aligned with those of the National Garden Club. Under the dynamic, boots-on-the-ground leadership of Executive Director, Katherine Brown, Ph.D., the agency not only encourages the sustainable use and respect of our beautiful earth among our citizens, but it also has made great progress in soliciting the backing of major corporations. The corporations in turn help to influence State policy on environmental issues that are important to us all. On a statewide level, nearly all of our garden clubs either financially support the Community Land Trust and/or volunteer there.

The [SCLT] advances the study of gardening, environmental issues and horticulture at every age level of learning. The hope is that the ‘new’ farmers program will not only create ‘new’ farmers, but may in time, foster interest in other areas such as conservation, horticultural and botanical centers. The RI Federation of Garden Clubs, Inc. is proud to submit this application for a non-member Award of Excellence for the Southside Community Land Trust and proud, as well, to have the honor of supporting their work. “
