Carlisle Uncut: Stories off the Beaten Path-Building Community Through the Project SHARE Farm Stand

reneeingridCarlisle Uncut: Stories off the Beaten Path is a series of stories produced by first year students during the Campus Media Pre-Orientation program.  10 students arrived on a Sunday, interviewed people on Monday, edited on a Tuesday and aired their stories on WDCV by Wednesday morning.  It was a fast paced introduction to audio journalism, storytelling and learning about their new home of Carlisle through the eyes of the individuals who live here. We will post a new story every day this week until all 5 stories are told.

Building Community Through the Project SHARE Farm Stand

Project SHARE is a community asset not only for the people who receive food from their outreach but the whole town has benefitted from their devotion to building community.  Their volunteers are not just people who are willing to lend a hand, they are often the same people who are on the receiving end of the food distribution.  We watched as people went through the line only to drop off their food so they could come back and help unload trucks and distribute food to the next people in line.  It is this sense of sharing and community that can’t be taught in a class but expands through every simple gesture of giving back.  Ingrid and Renee spoke with both Project SHARE employees and volunteers as well as recipients of from their food distribution to learn what makes this organization and their Farm Stand, so unique and special.
