Urban Edge Farm

(Providence,RI)

Urban Edge Farm (UEF) is located in Western Cranston, RI, and is a project of the Southside Community Land Trust (SCLT). The 50-acre farm includes production fields, irrigation ponds, wetlands, a small wood lot, several barns and 2 production greenhouses. SCLT's goal in acquiring the farm was to develop models of sustainable agriculture, farm education, economic development and food systems that work in partnership with our urban programs. In addition to the Summer Program Subscription, UEF hosts two additional programs - the Farm Business Incubator Program and the Farm Education Center. The Farm Business Incubator Program provides individuals in Rhode Island who wish to develop agricultural businesses, with the land, technical resources and equipment to begin their farm enterprises. The Farm Education Center is working with children and young adults to reconnect them to where their food comes from, through field trips, community service projects and workshops.
