[Photo posted in the public domain by the Wellsville YMCA after school program and the Wellsville Community Garden Project.] In loving memory of Shawntelle (Kalkbrenner) Santas,
SheilaLynnK Art Studio supports the Fassett Greenspace as a
valuable sustainable asset to the future of environmental and cultural awareness and preservation in our rural community.
The Story Art for Rural America works to bring the benefits of creativity to people of all age groups, nationalities and economic conditions living in rural America through artistic, cultural, and educational programming. “The Fassett GreenSpace” will be more than just a set of raised garden beds; rather it will be a living laboratory for local schools and adult programs, a tool to combat food insecurity, and a showcase of resilience, creativity, and collaboration within Allegany County."
