Harvesting Hope Fundraiser @ Squantum Association
Sep 25 @ 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Harvesting Hope Fundraiser @ Squantum Association

Harvesting Hope is an annual fundraiser featuring food grown by Southside Community Land Trust-supported farmers to highlight the organization’s work to build a sustainable, local food system. Attendees will hear about our recent projects, including our work to connect land owners with aspiring farmers seeking affordable property where they can grow food. Harvesting Hope will take place from 6-8:30 p.m. on Tues., Sept. 25, at the Squantum Association, at 947 Veterans Memorial Pkwy., Riverside, RI.

This year, we’ve invited chefs from several of Rhode Island’s most exciting restaurants – including Gracie’s, Red Fin Crudo, Walrus & Carpenter and Bayberry – to develop small plates featuring fresh produce grown by farmers around the state who participate in our land access, farmer training and apprenticeship programs. The event will also offer wines and a signature cocktail by Bottles Fine Wine and beer brewed for the event by Union Station Brewery. Last year’s event co-chair, Gracie’s Chef Matthew Varga, will continue to participate in the event. Besides the high quality of the produce grown locally, what Varga most appreciates about SCLT is its work to grow a local, sustainable food system – and healthy food itself – that is available to anyone in the state who wants it. “They do so much for Providence and Rhode Island to promote high-quality food, and to help farmers, refugees and community gardeners. It’s incredible to see how they have grown and the amount of impact they have on the community.”

Tickets run $100 for the 6-8:30 p.m. main event and $150 for 5 p.m. entry to the pre-event cocktail party. Both include two drinks and can be purchased at http://www.501auctions.com/harvestinghope. SCLT  manages a network of 52 community gardens and urban farms, 21 of which it owns in Providence’s most economically challenged neighborhoods (Olneyville, the Southside and West End), where fresh, healthy food is least available. In addition to providing access to land SCLT offers education and agricultural resources so people in Rhode Island can grow food in environmentally sustainable ways, and create community food systems where locally produced, affordable and healthy food is available to all. SCLT is located at 109 Somerset Street in Providence, RI, 02907. For more information, please call 401-273-9419, or visit www.southsideclt.org
