Americorps Week

This week celebrates Americorps and all of the volunteer currently serving, as well as those who have served in the past.

GardenShare is thrilled to have an Amercorps VISTA (Volunteers in Service to America) working with us this year.  Brianna Blackburn started in November and will serve a full year, working on farmers markets, SNAP (formerly called food stamps), and volunteer recruitment.

Brianna comes to GardenShare through the Anti-Hunger Opportunity Corps, which is a program of Hunger Free America and the USDA, and is supported by WalMart and the Corporation for National and Community Service.

GardenShare will soon be recruiting for a second Americorps VISTA position, to start in June.  Watch this space and for more details.
