We are Little City Growers.

Red Planet Vegetables, Johnston, RI
Matthew Tracy and Catherine Mardosa started Red Planet Vegetables in the spring of 2004, growing intensively and year round on small plots in Olneyville and on the west side of Providence. They moved onto the historic Mathewson Farm in Johnston in 2008, where they now have a 2.5 acre garden and a movable henhouse for 40 odd chickens. As founding members of the Little City Growers Cooperative, they share their skills and experience with beginning farmers and support our lively community of growers, chefs and food lovers.

City Farm, Providence, RI
City Farm is a ¾-acre urban farm in the heart of Providence’s Southside.  Since 1981 this sustainable, hyper-local, bio-intensive farm has been producing a beautiful and abundant array of produce for farmers markets and restaurants.  City Farm is a program of the Southside Community Land Trust, a founding member of the Little City Growers Co-op, and is a resource for other urban growers.

Scratch Farm, Cranston, RI
Scratch Farm is a 2-acre bio-intensive farm in western Cranston run by Ben Torpey and a small crew of wonderful humans. Ben has been growing vegetables full-time since 2005.  In that time he has learned a few things but mostly that he loves the work and that there is so much left to learn. At Scratch Farm, we strive to foster a rich soil ecology in order to raise the best tasting produce possible. For Little City Growers, we specialize in asparagus, strawberries, heirloom tomatoes, leeks and beets.

Foggy Notion Farm, Johnston, RI
Adam Graffunder, Jenna Yu and Nathaniel Wood are growing soil and food on historic farmland surrounded by the beautiful forests of Snake Den State Park without chemical inputs. We use innovative growing techniques learned by transforming vacant city lots into productive farms. Foggy Notion Farm was born through a collaboration between small scale, urban growers from Providence, Rhode Island. We are a chemical free farm, growing on 4 acres at Snake Den Farm in Johnston, RI.
