Membership Is Launching Soon--We Promise!

Well, our best intentions sometimes get waylaid by technical difficulties and this is one of those issues. But, be patient just a *little* bit longer as we are making sure that we can offer a membership registration that is as simple as possible! AS well, we are pushing our Informational Meeting to March now to accommodate our late launch.

On a more fun note, please get involved and come to our Clean Up Day on Saturday, February 15! See details to the right.

January Committee Reports

The holidays slowed us down, but we're back at work! Membership launch was postponed until after the new year as it seemed that it would not be seen by people right before the holiday. As you can see, we have a new (temporary) website and we'll be refining this over the months as we develop the food coop. Right now, our primary focus is on our first membership phase, which is a small campaign to get people who have expressed interest in the food co-op, to join. As we move into Spring and the weather gets warmer, we'll be launching a more public and diverse Outreach and Membership Campaign to ensure that everyone in the neighborhood knows who we are and how they can become part of the co-op!
