hello mommas! I, first, would like to put a call out for a 'meet up'. It would be wonderful to meet all of you! I have pm'd a few who are interested, but maybe we can all come together to say hello.

Secondly, I have been wanting to start a food co-op! AND right now I have to opportunity to write a grant to get some fed. funding.

I don't know if any of you were around when the Good Day Market was here, but it was such a great co-op. I am thinking that a storefront would be the way to go.

I could go on forever about this

So, please contact me if you all are interested. There are a few groups out there thinking the same thing, and I would really like for all to unite.

I look forward to meeting, and maybe working with, you all.

I have heard from so many mommas!!!!
So, this coming weekend would be great, if everyone can make it. I work on the weekends at the soup kitchen, so the earliest I can do it is at 11am. On sunday I have a 'knit-in" (any knitters are welcome! yarn provided for mass project) at 3 pm. SO, saturday might be the best.

I have been wondering what space would be big enough, and it finally hit me that I work at a child care center!!!! There is plenty of room, and lots of toys, and a kitchen if we wanted to make it a food event. Let me know what you want to do? It would be nice to do it around 4 and do some cooking for dinner, but then 11 is good too.

I am going to try to put my email on my profile. I check email more often than pm's.

Randee,

just catching up here. I'd be interested to hear how things went with your first meeting. I'm not in a position to volunteer for big stuff at this point but would love to hear how things are going with the coop idea.

PS: and would also still be interested in a meet-up...we just got through the stomach flu, but by next week we should be all done

we're in Saco and definitely interested in getting updates...

are you talking about a LOCATION co-op, or a food BUYING co-op? if it's buying, we are definitely interested...
