Sustainers Support GardenShare (Thu, 2013-06-13) Anyone can join GardenShare's Sustainers Circle to help build an equitable, sustainable regional food system.

As a small organization, we are very much at the mercy of economic instability, state and federal budget wrangling, and just plain difficult times. A commitment of support helps us plan ahead, and ensures that we'll have money in the bank to continue to run our flagship programs that help make our community a great place to find fresh, local food, regardless of income.
