invitation to SCLT's 40-ish anniversary party

We’re celebrating four decades of growing healthy food in our communities

SCLT was born when a group of neighbors built the Somerset Community Garden on an empty lot in South Providence. Over the next four decades, this simple desire – to grow one’s own delicious food – led to 22 urban gardens and farms in three cities and large farm properties covering 70 acres across Rhode Island.

Many hands went into making SCLT the thriving organization that it is today. To celebrate these collective efforts, we’re inviting friends and families to join us at one of the city’s unrecognized, lovely and vibrant spaces, the Peace & Plenty Community Garden and Park, on Sunday, September 18. Enjoy live music, sample foods from the many cultures represented in our gardens and see how far we’ve come in 40-ish years. 

Other activities include:

  • Share your SCLT experience in a Story Corps-style audio diary 
  • Meet our farmers and pick out produce in a pop-up market
  • Join in a giant art project, try your luck in a raffle, and more!
