GardenShare is moving!

After seven years in space generously provided by the St. Lawrence University Environmental Studies Department, GardenShare has outgrown that space and will be moving into a new office this week.  This new space is generously provided by St. Lawrence Health System and should work for us well into the future.

At GardenShare's last Board of Directors meeting, President Carol Pynchon (center)
signed the lease with St. Lawrence Health Systems, while Executive Director
Gloria McAdam holds one dollar for the annual rent!

This move means so much more than just a larger space!  It's an exciting time at GardenShare.  With the addition of a Volunteer Coordinator and an Americorps volunteer to our team, we are working to build on and expand programs developed over the organization's twenty-year history and developing new ways to address food system and hunger issues in the region. The right infrastructure will help GardenShare continue to make healthy, fresh, locally-grown produce available to low-income families in St. Lawrence County. 
GardenShare will be closed Thursday and Friday, December 15 and 16 for the move, reopening on Monday, December 19.  Our phone number will be unchanged as will our PO Box for mail.

With more space comes the need for more furniture and equipment.  If you might be able to help with donating any of the following, please let us know with an e-mail to
  • 2 desks 
  • 1 or 2 large file cabinets (4-5 drawer)
  • 1 small file cabinets (2 drawer)
  • bookshelves
  • desk lamps
  • microwave
Or go here to make a financial donation to support GardenShare's ongoing work.

Wish us luck with the move and look for an invitation to an open house sometime in the new year!
