Thanks, Pfizer!
On June 10, about 40 volunteers from Pfizer congregated at
Manchester Street Park to help plant 200 perennials, remove invasive weeds and debris as well as weed the community garden. Thanks to a great effort with real results! 


Celebrating Urban Birds
In order to continue our work improving open green space in Lawrence, we have teamed up with the prestigious Cornell Lab of Ornithology on their Celebrate Urban Birds Program. Our project has been focused on Manchester Street Park, and is helping to make some exciting improvements there!

Help Extend the Harvest by Supporting Share-a-Share™
As part of our mission, we strive to make high-quality fresh produce accessible to as many members of our community as we can. Groundwork Share-a-Share™ donations are used to subsidize the cost of fresh food through subsidized CSA shares, incentive programs for our Farmers Markets, Fruit and Vegetable Prescriptions (FVRx), and fresh food donations to food pantries. Through our Groundwork Share-a-Share™ Program, you can make a tax-deductable donation to help us extend the benefits of fresh, locally grown food to those who would otherwise not be able to afford it.


Your donation in the 2013 season is particularly crucial because our primary FVRx foundation funder is unable to support our program this year.


This means that without your donation, we will be unable to help a significant number of low-income families who suffer from diet-related health disparities afford fresh produce.Help us meet our goal--we are almost there!

Thank you in advance for considering a donation to Share-a-Share!
