Since 1981, the Southside Community Land Trust has provided land, education, resources, and support for community members to provide healthy food for themselves. Partnering with the City of Providence, the Rhode Island Foundation, and Brown University Center for Environmental Studies, among many others, the trust has transformed five acres of urban land into productive food growing space, and preserved 50-acres of suburban farmland. More than 600 families citywide have transformed vacant lots and under used land into more than 30 community gardens. Through a variety of education programs, the group engages over 1,000 community youth members in hands-on gardening activities each year.
