In celebration of our Great River Co-op Annual Meeting 2017, we announce an online t-shirt and tote bag store to benefit the Great River Co-op! A portion of each product sold will go to the Co-op to help fund the project. SHOP NOW!
We joined forces with local screen printing shop, Beeze Tees in Keene, to offer a brand new online store with options for pickup in store, or shipping to your home.
After looking through their extensive catalogue of product options, we settled on an array of designs for men, women and youth, choosing soft fabrics in earthy colors for your comfort. There is even an organic cotton option!
Every April, the students from the Collaborative Architectural Project class at Keene State College choose individual and community organization construction projects to gain real-life experience in solving architectural challenges.
This year, they chose the Great River Co-op!
Under the leadership of Professor Donna Paley, the students have already come up with several options for shape and layout of the future Co-op buildings. They've visited multiple existing co-op locations for inspiration and ideas, and it's been great seeing the out-of-the-box thinking from this group!
Join us in National Celebration of Co-op Month in October
This October, The Great River Food Co-op is joining over 30,000 co-ops and credit unions across the United States in celebrating Co-op Month, recognizing the many ways co-operatives help to build stronger communities and more resilient local economies. For 2016, the National Cooperative Business Association CLUSA International has identified “Co-operatives Build” as the theme for the month, spotlighting the advantages co-ops offer to their members and the communities in which they live and work.
Locally, we’ll be celebrating Co-op Month with a Harvest Dinner on October 16th. Held at the Bellows Walpole Inn, the dinner will feature as many local ingredients as possible. Like our Facebook page for updates as we finalize details, and please consider helping out with the event. We would love your support!
