On May 11th The Elms Will Participate in The Westerly Land Trust (WLT) Community Garden Dedication

May 6, 2019

The Elms is taking part in the Westerly Land Trust’s Community Garden project. We have sponsored a beautiful Westerly-sourced carved granite bench, and soon visitors will be able to sit and enjoy the soon-to-be thriving Community Garden.

The Elms will be tending our plot at the Garden all season long. We plan on using some of the tomatoes and herbs cultivated from the Garden for our gourmet dining room and other bistro events. The Garden will also support community food programs such as the Warm Center’s Anita’s Kitchen, which is dedicated to helping those in need. Our Executive Chef Michael Lipowski and Elms kitchen staff prepare a meal weekly for Anita’s Kitchen’s guests. (Note: Anita’s Kitchen, prepared nearly 100 lunches and dinners every day, 365 days a year!)

We will be celebrating the inaugural growing season on May 11th at 2pm at the Community Garden’s new location, 145 Main Street in downtown Westerly.

Many thanks to our staff and local area residents for what they have done to support WLT’s vision for an expanded community garden on Main Street. Just one more reason to love Westerly!
