It was great to see everyone at the annual meeting, a sure sign that spring is on the way. Kate brought boxes of seeds to share and a very creative seed card challenge game. For the record, Team Alicia and Linda got almost all of them right! As always, the food was amazing. I even overheard one of our gardeners say that the spring gathering was her favorite night eating out all year. As a special treat, Laura baked a fabulous apple pie to celebrate our 10th year in the garden.
The meeting went something like this:
“Anyone want to hear about the rules? – NO!”
“Anyone want to hear about the finances? – NO!”
“Anyone want Pie? – YES!”
A very successful pie, I mean meeting.
Mark your calendars, the first garden workday is on Sunday, April 8th from 10am – 2pm. We are the east side hub for Southside Community Land Trust which means for the third year in a row we will also be hosting The Urban Agriculture Kick-Off from 11am – 1pm the same day. Garden rules only require you put in 2 hours of work but the day is so much fun you may want to stay for the entire time. The Oak Hill Band will be providing live entertainment again this year – Thank you Jeff! There will also be seeds, workshops, free compost for members, and a visit by some of the best food trucks in Providence. Bring your family! Tell your friends! It’s really a great day in the garden!
Hello and welcome to the Sessions Street Community Garden website.

If you’re a guest, welcome. We’re happy you found us here. We’re a well established garden located on Sessions Street just behind the JCC. Please feel free to stop by and visit us in the garden. We each have our own plots that we tend with love and care throughout the season as well as a few communal plots that we share. The chores associated with maintaining the garden are also shared, such as weeding, mulching and composting. At times we hold workshops in the garden and are actively involved with Southside Community Land Trust.
Throughout the season it’s likely you’ll find us in the garden at the end of the day with a table cloth laid out, food and drink to share. Live music, children running back and forth from the garden to the play ground and back again, friends enjoying the fruits of their labor. The whole family, many families talking and laughing in the true spirit of community gardening.
We hope to share with you some of our collective knowledge, our love of gardening and our joy in being on this journey together!
