Build-out Analysis

The build-out analysis we commissioned from Sasaki & Associates is complete. Its projections are sobering; if development and conservation levels continue as projected, all of the unconserved land on Aquidneck Island will be developed. ALT will present the report to the three municipalities this winter. Read the full report here.

Growers Market

Fresh produce, eggs, meat, flowers, and baked goods are available at the Saturday Aquidneck Growers Market at Pell Elementary School each Saturday. Read about the new format that enables social distancing before you attend. Thank you for supporting local agriculture!

Historic Blue Garden

Visit the Blue Garden’s website to learn more about this historic Newport property, which was created by Frederick Law Olmstead, Jr., between 1911 and 1913. It was conserved by ALT in 2018, thanks to the Hamilton Family Charitable Trust, which donated the easement. The garden is private and open by appointment.
