Spend more time with your Board!
We’ve two new activities starting in January 2016: Chew on This! and Co-op Talk.
Chew on This!
First Saturday of each month between 3 and 5 pm
Third Tuesday between 11am and 1pm
Twice a month board members will be dispensing samples at the Co-op, highlighting items from bulk, produce, and/or the deli. We’ll provide recipes so you can recreate these tasty treats at home. Stop by to taste our tempting tidbits, and to talk food and co-ops with your board members.
In January, we’ll feature grains and/or beans from Nash (who farms in Sequim) and Hummingbird Wholesale (a small regional distributor based in Eugene). In February, we’ll dip into Nash again as well as try the black garbanzo beans from Timeless (which provides us with organic beans and lentils from Montana). In March, we’ll celebrate the start of gardening season with kale and pea shoots (unless, of course, we see something else we must try in produce!).
Also twice each month, board members will be in the alcove to talk with owner-members about topics pertinent to the coop and our community, from food accessibility to cooperative history to emergency preparedness to alternative ways to shop (what do you think about online shopping, for example). We’ll have a specific topic each month, usually one related to the next board meeting, but feel free to stop by to talk about other coop matters as well. (We’ll also tempt you to talk with us with samples of chocolate or cheese, or some other irresistible treat.)
