SCLT and other local organizations with overlapping missions have been collaborating in new and creative ways, especially since the start of the pandemic, to support our state’s one in four families that still cannot meet their basic food needs.

PROVIDENCE — A multimillion-dollar loan recently granted to Southside Community Land Trust (SCLT) is set to improve the availability of healthy and affordable food in CentralFalls, Pawtucket, and South Providence for years to come, according to an SLCT spokesperson.
A creative and significant loan brokered by the Conservation Law Foundation to support SCLT’s GROW! Campaign [for $2.158 M] was profiled in CLF’s newsletter, Conservation Matters. We are reprinting it here to bring attention to it with the hope that it will lead to other, similar partnerships.
The Properties & Equipment Program Coordinator is responsible for maintenance of all properties leased and owned by SCLT, including the organization’s headquarters, community gardens, urban farms, and rural properties, and all shared facilities and infrastructure at these sites.
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.
