Support GardenShare in 2016

The GardenShare Board of Directors is taking a more organized approach to fundraising activities and partnerships for the coming year. 
We will be holding three fundraising events:
  • Cabin Fever Trivia Night on March 3, 2016 at the Potsdam Elks Club
  • Annual Dinner on June 14, 2016 at Jake's on the Water in Hannawa Falls
  • Fight Hunger 5K in September at the Potsdam Farmers Market
In addition, there are opportunities to advertise in the Local Food Guide and the opportunity to sponsor GardenShare's annual report or website.
Details the different sponsorship options, including packages with multiple sponsorships included, can be found here.  Businesses or organizations that want to help should get in touch with Gloria McAdam or complete and return the pledge form.
Sponsorship of these programs will help make possible the realization of GardenShare's vision for the North Country:
  • Healthy Food  - Our annual Local Food Guide and farmers market promotion programs help ensure that the County has a vibrant, local food system where our food choices are healthy for us, for our communities, and for the environment.
  • Healthy Farms - Our work promoting CSAs and Farmers Markets helps ensure that local farmers are able to make a living that supports their families, contributing to a robust local economy.   
  • Everybody Eats - We make it possible for people to use food stamps at area Farmers Markets and help low-income families buy CSA shares so that everyone in the County has access to enough nutritious and affordable food to sustain a healthy lifestyle. 
 Thank you to our very first sponsor to sign up for 2016 - St. Lawrence Health System!
