flyer for 2023 Urban Agriculture Kick-off

Pick up new seeds & skills, get a tour of 404 Broad Street on Mar. 25

SCLT’s Urban Agriculture Kick-off has taken different forms over the years. In 2023, it will be held at one location: our headquarters at 404 Broad Street, from 11 am to 1 pm on Sat., Mar. 25. There will be gardening workshops, kids activities, ask-the-expert opportunities and healthy snacks. You can sign up for your SCLT membership in person, pick up some free seeds and 50 gallons of organic compost (free with membership). Haven’t been to our new building yet? Get a tour of our second floor offices and meeting rooms, and the community kitchen and Farm-to-Market Center on the ground floor.

Workshops will include Dividing Perennials with our longtime Plant Sale Committee volunteer, Nancy Weiss-Fried. This gardening procedure improves the health and abundance of your perennials and should happen regularly. For those who want to contribute perennials to the Plant Sale, this is a great opportunity to come see how it’s done, pick up empty pots and compost to transplant your plants into before bringing them to City Farm in early May.

High-quality, organic compost from Smithfield Peat will be ready for pickup on Hayward Street between our building and the Somerset Hayward Youth. SCLT members, please find information about other pickup sites in your membership letter. Questions? please email 

Please register here so we know how many people to expect – thank you!
