The Seattle Farm Co-op recently closed its' retail sales location on S. Jackson Street due to the loss of their lease. The search for a new location has been elusive, as affordable warehouse locations are at a premium in our face growing city. The membership will be holding a very important meeting soon to decide what to do about this dilemma, and the options on the table seem to be far reaching. Clearly the support and growth of the membership plays a significant role and this is where we all need to pitch-in if we want the Seattle Farm Co-op to survive.
Why is it important? The Co-op is a collective action, not-for-profit source of urban farming resources that are required if we are going to obtain a yield from our urban landscape. The Co-op holds to the highest standards by providing organically produced, non-GMO feeds and related products. I personally encourage everyone to attend and participate; here are the details:
