The Great River Co-op Board of Directors was recently invited to take a tour of the Badger Balm facility in Gilsum, New Hampshire.
The purpose of our visit was to talk with co-founder Bill Whyte and Badger’s construction consultant, Steve Horton, about their construction materials and methods so that we can consider them as we begin working on plans to build the Great River Co-op facility.
We would like to emulate these in our own building, because they align with our values of supporting our regional economy by sourcing materials as locally as possible, and making the construction and operations of the store as sustainable as possible.
Thank you to Bill Whyte for the tour! More photos are up on our Facebook Page.
