Gardening 1200x600

Our Community Education programming is focused around connecting community members of all ages to local food and sharing knowledge of how fresh, locally grown ingredients fit into a healthful lifestyle. We provide this education in a wide variety of settings, from farmers markets and libraries to summer camps and senior centers.

Healthy Foods, Healthy Families

You can find our Community Educators out at select farmers markets during the summer season — providing local food samples, fun family activities, information about local food, recipes, and more! You can also register at our Community Education tables to receive $10 weekly vouchers to use at Providence farmers markets for the remainder of 2022. Thank you to the from the Healthy Communities Office of Providence for providing these vouchers to shoppers!

Community Programs

Our Community Education empowers participants to make informed food choices while contributing to the local economy. We offer one-time workshops or series-based programs covering basic food literacy, cooking education, gardening, and food justice for schools, senior centers, community organizations, and libraries. All programming is hands-on, interactive, and fun — providing tangible opportunities to explore local agriculture and our relationships with food.
