Come get your free veggie seeds and organic compost at our annual Urban Agriculture Kick-off!

UAKO takes place Sat., April 14, at four community gardens in our Providence network (see below for addresses).

This free event features experts at each site to answer questions about organic growing and to offer tips on how to maximize your yield from small urban plots,backyard gardens and containers. You can pick up free non-GMO, organic and heirloom vegetable, herb and flower seeds, plus low-cost, locally made organic fertilizer. Finally, SCLT members and anyone who joins or renews at UAKO can bring home 50 gallons of high-quality, organic compost (just show your membership card). Please bring large, plastic containers to cart away your compost (we’ll have paper yard waste bags on hand for those without them).
