Co-op Happenings....



The Co-op has been quite active lately, its time for the blog to catch up. Last night we held our Fall General Membership Meeting at the Westcott Cinema. We screened the movie Black Gold. Over 60 members enjoyed good conversation, locally grown popcorn, Fair Trade coffee, a eye opening documentary, and a chance to nominate themselves for the Board of Directors. Co-op member Stefanie Noble decided she was going to throw her hat in the ring nominate herself for one of the open positions. More information about the election will be available soon.

On Sunday night we held our 2nd annual Harvest Dinner at
BC Restaurant. A big thanks to the farmers who participated, the folks who came for the farmers food and the Bill Collins of bc for preparing a wonderful meal. (pictures to follow)

congrats to stephanie noble for being self nominated.... the movie was terrific. beautifully filmed and informative. music was quite lovely. tadessee meskela should be an inspiration to us all. if you didnt see the film, it is worth seeking out. especially since most of us participate daily in the "coffee ritual" and we all need to be more aware of how our rituals/behaviors/choices affect the world. i am also excited about the upcoming identification of foods from local sources by the coop...thanks to board, staff and members for your efforts and caring about what sustains us all.. -tree

Continuing the "Black Gold" discussion - there was a story on NPR's "Day to Day" today about Ethiopian coffee: http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=6485774
