Compost Plant

The Compost Plant closes "the loop in the food system, turning food scraps and "waste" products into compost and soil mixes that help gardeners and farmers grow more local food. We believe more local food means healthier communities...and we believe it all starts with healthy soil."

From the website, November 28, 2018.

Narragansett Food Sovereignty Initiative

"Narragansett Tribal Food Sovereignty Initiative was established to enable Narragansett people to provide food, health, and wellness through sustainable agriculture, economic development, community involvement, and cultural and educational programs."

- From the website, July 26, 2018

The Crandall Minacommuck Farm, owned by the Narragansett, enables the tribe to develop initiatives to improve the health and sustainability of their community.

Community Gardens

Community Gardens are spaces individuals can rent for the growing season to plant vegetables and flowers for their own use. In Rhode Island, nonprofits have organized Community Gardens all over the place, including in vacant lots and church lawns. Sometimes a group of neighbors work with city officials to create Community Gardens in part of a park or other publicly owned land. In the case of the West End Community Garden at Westminster & Bridgham in Providence, the garden organizers in 2007 worked with the business that owns the land. The possibilities are many!
