Slater Mill’s historic garden, located aside the 1758 Sylvanus Brown House, has been under the care of U.R.I. Master Gardener Volunteers since 2014. Planted with a selection of native plants, typical food source and fiber source plants, and ornamentals reflective of the period, the garden is a source of education and pride at our site.
If you are interested in volunteering your time to work in the garden, please contact us via info (at) slatermill (dot) org, and we will put you in touch with our garden leaders.
