Mission of the project

The Trans-FARM-ative project is a comprehensive initiative to expand food security, agricultural sustainability, economic viability, and LGBTQ+ community support in Rhode Island. The project will expand its growing area, install a rain collection system, extend the growing season, implement ADA-accessible facilities, and continue its LGBTQ youth agricultural education program.


Provide Nutritous Food to Low or No-Income LGBTQIA+ People

LGBTQ+ People in the United States are twice as likely to experience food insecurity. Food insecure people are more than twice as likely to experience poor health. We have partnered with local LGBTQIA+ organizations and other farms to take action against this solvable problem.


Agriculture should be a part of the eco-system, not replace it. We have built our facilities from the ground up focused on sustainable practices to protect the environment, work with the local permaculture, expand New England's natural resource base, and maintain and improve soil fertility.


All types of bodies belong outdoors. Everyone should experience nature. In addition to LGBTQIA+ inclusivity, we have focused on building ADA-accessible facilities, pathways, and garden beds, ensuring equitable access for individuals with disabilities and partnering effectively with LGBTQIA+ veteran groups.

Youth Education

We focus heavily on education and safety. Our LGBTQ youth agricultural education program empowers the next generation with the skills and knowledge for sustainable agriculture and providing a safe, supportive space for LGBTQ youth.
