Urban Agriculture - RI

City of Providence

Providence has had an Urban Agriculture movement since 2004, led by Southside Community Land Trust (SCLT) and involving many community groups, city agencies, and state entities. See the 2008 Urban Ag Task Force report.

The Providence Urban Ag Task Force is behind the development of Plant Providence and the Providence Community Garden Network. Most recently, Lots of Hope has begun educating residents about growing food in the city, as well as transforming city-owned vacant lots into productive farms.

See the Providence Urban Ag page.
