Description

The mission of Southside Community Land Trust is to provide access to land, education and other resources necessary for people in the Greater Providence area to grow food in environmentally sustainable ways as a means to creating a food system where locally produced, affordable and nutritious food is available to all.

Southside Community Land Trust (SCLT), located on the southside of Providence, Rhode Island, started in 1981 with the conversion of a 3/4 acre vacant lot into a community garden. Today, this community garden is City Farm.

In the last 32 years SCLT has reclaimed approximately 5 acres of once blighted vacant lots and turned them into a network of community gardens in all neighborhoods of Providence, RI; grown, donated and sold hundreds of pounds of organic produce at City Farm; hosted hundreds of city youths in City Farm's children's Garden; educated volunteers about the urban environment and food production; expanded to farm on 50 preserved acres in the neighboring city of Cranston (Urban Edge Farm); assisted in the start-up of 7 new minority-owned farm businesses.
