Community Table: Sweet Pea Farm and Amos Greene Farm

12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Join us for a Community Table discussion with Kathan Teepe of Sweet Pea Farm and Carla Ricci of Amos Greene Farm!

Kathan Teepe of Sweet Pea Farm had been seeking farmland for lease to grow vegetables through her own CSA. Meanwhile, Carla and Russ Ricci were searching for a tenant to care for part of their 100-acre Amos Greene Farm in Charlestown.

Southside Community Land Trust’s Land Access Working Group brought together Sweet Pea Farm and Amos Greene Farm as part of an initiative to help urban and beginning farmers to expand their business onto peri-urban and rural land. Since then, the pair signed a lease and Kathan and friends have prepared the soil for their first crops!

Come and learn more about how this partnership came to be and hear about their plans for 2018 at this month’s Community Table.

One table, one conversation, and a great way for eaters, advocates, or those curious to connect and exchange ideas. Come when you can and bring your lunch or snack. Free and open to all!
