BUILDING AND MAINTAINING GREEN SPACE
GroundCorp, a social venture of Groundwork Rhode Island, is a landscape design-build and maintenance service, employing graduates of our adult job training program and improving the physical environment in Rhode Island’s core urban communities.
CONNECTING YOUTH WITH NATURE & OPPORTUNITY
Groundwork Rhode Island employs high school age youth year-round through our Green Team program in Providence, Pawtucket, and Central Falls. In the summer, youth are hired for six weeks, participating in environmental education and community service projects that improve their city’s environment.
CREATING COMMUNITY RESILIENCE
Our bike-powered, sliding-scale-fee Harvest Cycle compost service employs young people in collecting and composting food scraps from both residential and small commercial subscribers, reducing food waste and creating nutrient-rich soil for urban agriculture.
