Five high school students knelt over a bucket of garlic seed behind the Salvation Army on Broad Street in Providence. They gathered on a corner lot bordered by littered sidewalks and abandoned houses, getting ready to plant cloves whose bright green shoots will emerge early next spring.
During the growing season gorgeous produce in every hue and shape is artfully displayed in farmers market booths. This fall, vegetables grown by SCLT farmers (and others) became the subject of an artist’s work on view at a Providence gallery.
Besides offering technical training and affordable land to beginning farmers, in 2017, SCLT pooled immigrant and refugee farmers’ produce and sold it directly to wholesale markets, enabling farmers to add to their skills and reinvest in their businesses.
