We’re hiring a Sustainable Agriculture Coordinator in partnership with TerraCorps, an AmeriCorps-affiliated environmental nonprofit that prepares emerging leaders to work in the environmental and conservation sectors.
If you’re a homeowner, you know there’s always something needing to be repaired, rebuilt or replaced. If you run a land trust with 25 properties spread over 77 acres, that to-do list can seem endless.
We’re adding on to our fall Youth Program this year! Young people between 14-24 are invited to apply for Saturday jobs located at SCLT urban farms in Providence and Pawtucket.
Josselyn Velásquez-Florián joined SCLT in April 2021 as our new development coordinator, working on donor relations, events, database management, grants and communications.
This spring, the American Farmland Trust awarded SCLT a $5,000 grant toward the purchase of The Good Earth Farm in Cranston and awarded a $5,000 grant to farmers Teo and Margarita Martinez, whose business is located at Urban Edge Farm.
As of July 2, 2021, SCLT became the new owner of the Good Earth Farm, located at 1800 Scituate Avenue in Cranston. The 9-acre property includes a barn, three heated greenhouses, two high tunnels and a small retail operation.
After a successful initial year, SCLT will again host two TerraCorps service staff “members” from this coming August to July, 2022.
