May 2015 Newsletter

Our Birthday Party on Earth Day was a huge success!
We packed Crystal Lake Brewing, enjoyed wonderful live music, fantastic food and great beer! Plus, we signed up 20 new owners that night! Our donors and vendors all deserve a big THANK YOU! Check the Shop Local page on our website and support the local businesses and organizations who support Food Shed Co-op.

What's going on now?
GROWing our ownership numbers is our number one priority right now. We need to reach 500 owners before we can select a location, so we are getting out in the community and spreading the word anywhere we can this summer! 

Want to Find Out More?
Volunteers and members of our board will be available to answer your questions and sign up new owners at three reoccurring monthly events this summer. This is a great opportunity to have a one-on-one conversation about our community-owned grocery store! Shirts, hoodies, totes and window decals will be available at two of the three ongoing events.
First Fridays at Crystal Lake Brewing, 6-8pm, ownerships and merchandise available
Coffee and Conversation at Ethereal Confections on Second Saturdays, 10am-Noon, ownerships and merchandise available
Woodstock Farmer's Market on Third Saturdays, 8am-1pm, ownerships available
