but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

Amanda's story

Being a lifelong grower of food my passion in life revolves around soil, sun, and seedsBeing a lifelong grower of food, my passion in life revolves around soil, sun, and seeds. I know the love and dedication it takes to go from a single seed to a bountiful harvest. Every summer I loved walking the local farmers market looking for the rare item, not in my garden, and making new friends who shared a similar passion. After moving to Sharon and hearing the incredibly sad story of the beloved grocery store burning down several years ago, an idea formed that maybe I could take my passion for food and local producers and create a much-needed resource here in my new hometown. What started as a crazy idea led to looking at downtown buildings and quickly turned into buying one of the oldest buildings in town in late 2019. As clean up and renovations began to ramp up, so did the global response to the pandemic. Between shutdowns and funding delays we are now a full year behind schedule putting an extra strain on our already boot-strapped budget. But persevere we must and the build-out is expected to be done this spring!. I know the love and dedication it takes to go from a single seed to a bountiful harvest.
