Founded in the spring of 2011, Sidewalk Ends Farm is based out of a 5000 square foot urban farm on Harrison Street in Providence's Armory Park neighborhood. Once a vacant lot, the farm at Harrison St. has become a hub of food production, beauty, and community education. We sell our produce at the Armory Farmers Market (a mixed-income market around the corner from the farm) and to our neighbors through a CSA. We also provide produce to local restaurants as a member of the Little City Growers Co-op, an urban and peri-urban direct marketing cooperative.
Community education is also an important part of our work. We teach workshops, at our farm and around town, on seed starting, soil remediation, and urban homesteading. We host many visitors throughout the season, from college classes, to kindergartners, to our neighbors and their children.
2014 is going to be an exciting time at Sidewalk Ends. Sarah Turkus, a long time friend and farmer, will join the team, bringing her years of experience in larger-scale vegetable production. Thank goodness, because we are expanding our operation by cultivating an additional 2 acres of vegetables in Seekonk, MA. This increase in production will enable us to better serve the demand for healthy local produce. With four sets of able hands, we are eager to explore how much more food we can produce working a larger tract of land in addition to our city hub. This additional space will allow us to try out some new ideas and practices, such as flower cultivation, raising poultry, and extending our season further into early spring and late fall through the use of hoop houses. Your CSA shares will include both salad and fresh herbs from the urban plot on Harrison Street and fruits and roots from the farm in Seekonk.
