To enhance community engagement, the Community Garden Network is a comprehensive list of community farms and gardens located throughout Rhode Island. This project aims to connect people with food resources around Rhode Island.

Through the interactive map, you will find the locations of all known community gardens and farms, farmers market, chain grocery stores, food pantries, and meal sites throughout Rhode Island.

Know of any community gardens and farms or farmers markets not listed? Feel free to join us and contribute!

Just noting that @kpezzoli had left a comment 17 days ago on the earlier version of this post, so I'm copying it over here. Thanks, @kpezzoli!

Consider adding "food forests" to your list of food producing types to map. See "the rise of community food forests" here:

Also https://permaculturenews.org/2011/10/21/why-food-forests/

I've only located 1 in Rhode Island so far, at Roger Williams Park, but certainly worth adding to the list!
