GLEAN & GIVE thru SSCLT

As the weather is getting colder, you’re probably starting to think about the end of the growing season. As we approach the first frost of fall, SCLT is excited to revive the old agricultural tradition of gleaning–the final harvest of the leftover crops! We are partnering with Crossroads RI and the Rhode Island Community Food Bank–two organizations committed to providing healthy food for the neediest Rhode Islanders–to offer you the opportunity to donate your end-of-season garden surplus to a good cause. We’re calling it GLEAN AND GIVE!

So if you’re getting tired of zucchini and summer squash, or have no interest in the last of the tomatoes still on the vine, glean and give your harvest!

For more information, please contact Cindy at cindy@southsideclt.org.

Check out our blog for a great slideshow that demonstrates how Crossroads RI can turn your excess tomatoes into hearty, delicious tomato sauce for Rhode Island’s neediest!

 * All produce is welcome (tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, herbs, cooking greens, etc). Produce can have blemishes or nicks but should not be rotting in any way. If it’s something you would harvest to eat yourself, then it’s acceptable to donate!

It’s that time of year!

Hello Gardeners!

It’s that delicious time of year, where we get together and celebrate all of the hard work that goes into running a community garden space! This year’s event will be held (as usual) at the Portuguese-American Social Club, 32 Sheldon St. in Fox Point, Providence on Tuesday, October 23.  It is a potluck with a small entrance donation & raffle. It’s always a great time, so bring your friends!
