Two weeks into SCLT’s summer youth program, nearly three dozen high school youth are busy learning how to tend, harvest and cook with fresh produce, as well as provide their neighbors with information about nutrition and climate change.
Late Monday morning, Central Falls residents, public health advocates and community leaders gathered for a ribbon cutting at the city’s new Garfield Park Community Garden at 128 Garfield Street.
Are you between 14-17 and live in Central Falls or Pawtucket? Are you looking for a fun, outdoor job this summer?
SCLT has been working in South Providence since 1981 to provide people access to land, education and other resources to enable them to grow their own food. We are actively expanding our work in Central Falls, Pawtucket and Cranston. As a youth staff member, you will help create community food systems where food is affordable, healthy, environmentally sustainable and culturally appealing.
PAWTUCKET – Talk about a truly “good news” story. To celebrate its report to the community and to highlight the successes of the past year, the Pawtucket/Central Falls Health Equity Zone held a farm to table dinner at the Hope Artiste Village on Sept. 26.
