USDA Grants announced

USDA recently awarded nearly $35 million in new funding through four grant programs to support local and regional food systems, including farmers markets. USDA's Agricultural Marketing Service awarded $13.3 million in Farmers Market Promotion Grants to 164 marketing and promotion projects involved with farmers markets, Community Supported Agriculture, and other direct-to-consumer outlets for local food.  

GardenShare is pleased to announce we received one of these grants, for $57,500 to support our work to promote Farmers Markets in St. Lawrence County to SNAP recipients.

Stay tuned for more information as we start to implement this grant!
