Over 20 raised beds and a compost bin were constructed in space that would have otherwise simply been given over to ground cover.  Every spring members of the neighborhood sign up for plots, and throughout the summer grow food for themselves or friends.

The URI Master Gardeners program donates free seeds and provides some advice to gardeners.
