I'm dreaming of a local ... co-op ...
OK, that was cheesy. But I'm excited! Today's the day, not just for the Proctor Farmers Market (veggies and oysters here I come!) ... but for the Tacoma Food Co-op's big party and your chance to become a founding member and take the effort that much closer to opening the doors officially. Check it out!
The Tacoma Food Co-op is growing up and it's time to celebrate! Join the fun from 4-9 p.m. Saturday, July 19, at People's Park, South 9th & Martin Luther King Jr. Way. The July 19 event is your chance to:
- Learn about progress the Tacoma Food Co-op has made.
- Discover what's next for the co-op.
- Find out how to become a member.
- Mingle with local farmers, musicians, restaurants, businesses and community organizations who share a common goal of providing healthy, affordable and fresh food for the residents of Tacoma.
Help make it a sustainable event! Spread the word via e-mail, radio, blogs and websites; bring a reusable bag, cup, mug, plate and silverware to the event; arrive by bus, bike, on foot or via carpool, and most of all: become a member! For more information, call (253) 272-8819, ext. 109, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
