Come plant peas to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Look for leftover peas in the shed if you can’t make it at 11am.
We will have our spring meeting and potluck on Sunday, April 1st from 4-6 at Alicia and Jeff’s, 32 Oak Hill Ave, Pawtucket. Please bring a check to pay for your plot (if you haven’t already) and a dish to share.
Directions to Alicia and Jeff’s house:
From the East Side: take Blackstone Blvd north, right on Alfred Stone Rd. (just before the end of the blvd.) Take a left onto Newman at the greenhouse. 32 Oak Hill is the big yellow house on the right corner. Alternatively, just after Hope turns into East Ave., turn right onto Ridge. Stay on Ridge and it turns into Oak Hill Ave. just at 32 Oak Hill.
Saint Patrick’s Day is just around the corner which means it’s pea planting time again. Unless of course you live in New England and are in a deep freeze…. looks like we’ll be waiting a week or so to plant but please pick up your pea seeds at the garden meeting on Sunday. The ground will thaw and we will plant.
Garden members we look forward to seeing you at our annual Spring Meeting and Potluck. Please bring a check to pay for your plot and a dish to share.
If you are not a garden member but love our little slice of heaven on the East Side of Providence we do have a waiting list. At this time there are close to 50 people on it but things change all the time, feel free to contact us to add your name or check out one of the neighboring community gardens that may still have available plots!
Join us for our annual Urban Agriculture Kick-off.
This free event is fun for the whole community! Agriculture experts
will be on hand to answer questions, Southside Community Land Trust will be giving away non-GMO, organic and heirloom seeds.
Sessions Street Garden and SCLT members can pick up their
annual Free organic compost. (don’t forget to bring a bucket and if you’re not a member all you have to do is join to receive 50 gallons for Free!)
We’ll also have a live band, food trucks and much more.
Gardeners don’t forget, it’s also a work day.
We’ll be working in our own garden alongside the event, please plan to put in at least two hours between the hours of 10am – 2pm
It’s summertime and the living is easy
Tomatoes are falling and the string beans are high
Oh, your soil is rich, but your kale is a boltin
So, work day is here now, don’t you cry
See you there!
