Our Purpose

The purpose of Peace and Plenty Community Garden is to create a communal growing and community space for residents of Providence's Southside Community to grow locally produced, affordable, and healthy food. 

Summary of Projects

In Spring 2017, the Peace & Plenty Community Garden received a Grow grant for materials to allow gardeners to work together to build a shed that will house communal garden tools, wheelbarrows and other garden supplies. The shed will both provide a secure, communal space for gardeners to store tools and provide a space to store loaner tools for the many gardeners who do not have access to tools, or cannot afford them.

These grants were awarded some time ago and the details haven't been uploaded to our online system. If you'd like to learn more, contact us ([email protected]) and we'll fill in the blanks.
