Providence Community Growers Network

Para leer esta informacion en espanol, hazte click aqui!

For 30 years Southside Community Land Trust has supported urban food producers. We currently manage 16 community gardens in South Providence and provide resources and support to over 700 food gardeners through our Community Growers Network.

Do you grow food in a community garden, a home garden, a school garden, or a market garden? This network is for you! The Providence Community Growers Network (PCGN) provides access to gardening resources, education, and community building for its members, helping gardeners in Providence grow more food!

We're working with community leaders to establish six Hubs in different Providence neighborhoods. Hubs may be community gardens or other community centers, serving as a distribution center for gardening materials and a host site for workshops and community events. We currently have Hubs in

Southside: Davey Lopes Recreation Center (227 Dudley St.)

West End: Groundwork Providence Community Garden (14-18 Ring St.)

Olneyville: Manton Avenue Community Garden (40 Florence St.)

Eastside: Sessions Street Community Garden (160 Sessions St.)
