 GardenShare, a nonprofit organization located in Canton and working to solve the problem of hunger and build a stronger food system in St. Lawrence County, is looking for student interns for the spring semester and the summer of 2016.

While the organization has no funds for paid internships, there are some meaningful opportunities for research and action that can make a significant difference to North Country residents, while also contributing to a student's academic work and building a resume.
