On a cold April day, Matt Lovecchio tends to seedlings in the warmth of City Farm’s greenhouse. He first came to SCLT in 2016 as a Providence College intern and has continued as a volunteer here ever since.
Just in time for our busiest season, Sebastian Interlandi joined SCLT as our Director of Farmland Access and Education on March 5.
For years Kathan Teepe had been looking for farmland where she could raise vegetables to sell through her own CSA, and where she could cultivate flowers for extra income.
Five high school students knelt over a bucket of garlic seed behind the Salvation Army on Broad Street in Providence. They gathered on a corner lot bordered by littered sidewalks and abandoned houses, getting ready to plant cloves whose bright green shoots will emerge early next spring.
During the growing season gorgeous produce in every hue and shape is artfully displayed in farmers market booths. This fall, vegetables grown by SCLT farmers (and others) became the subject of an artist’s work on view at a Providence gallery.
