What's Happening?

There are some great events coming up as well opportunities to support local friends who are doing good things for your neighborhood:

First, Sunday (May 11) is the Spring Bike Swap at AS220. Whether you're buying or selling, the swap is a great place to run into all those bike geeks you see out around the city. This one is indoors noon - 5. Show up early to get the best spot to sell that box of Bio-pace chainrings.

Friday (May 16) is Bike to Work Day here in the Capitol city. This event coincides with the national Bike to Work Week. Now more than ever, having a bicycle in your personal transportation aresenal is essential living the New American Dream. Whether you're making a statement or an actual lifestyle change, come out to support a more bicycle-friendly Providence.

Thursday - Saturday (May 15 - 18) is a fundraiser at the Steel Yard. Stop by and drop some money in support of local arts and culture. Check out the action-packed schedule on hand including some sort of Iron-Chef-style sculpture competition on Saturday afternoon followed by a BBQ and late night dance party with local legends Micah-Jackson.

I'm a believer, that in this day and age with food prices rising like a plume of smoke on the horizon, its time to start making friends with the local farmers. The best time to do this in Providence is Saturday and Sunday May 17 and 18 at the Southside Community Land Trust annual plant sale. The SSCLT farm has been around for 30 years at the corner of Dudley and West Clifford Streets providing space for local gardners and growing food for local families.
