GardenShare’s 5th Annual 1844 House Fundraiser Dinner (Mon, 2014-09-15) A Celebration of Local Food and Art on November 6, 2014

Please join GardenShare at our annual fundraiser at the 1844 House on Thursday, November 6. This celebration of food and art supports GardenShare's efforts to make healthy, sustainable food choices accessible to everyone in our community.

A selection of works from Chipman Woodworks will be on hand for raffle 
and purchase, with proceeds to benefit GardenShare. Gary Pierce uses a variety of local woods, largely harvested from Chipman, NY, right here in St. Lawrence County, to create beautiful functional objects that are hard to 
put down. Gary will be joining us for dinner as well!

Sullivan-Catlin publishes SLC Community Food Security Assessment (Tue, 2014-08-12) Find out what hunger in the North Country looks like.

Along with her colleagues David Bugg and Kristen Van Hooreweghe, and in partnership with GardenShare, Heather Sullivan-Catlin has written a St. Lawrence County Community Food Security Assessment.

To be food secure is to have reliable access to enough nutritious food to promote health and well-being. Access includes availability, affordability, as well as the skills, technology, and knowledge to prepare that healthy food. St. Lawrence County is among the poorest counties in New York State, and as such there are significant barriers to food security for many county residents.
