Classes Offered at Good Foods Co-Op

(There are many things that we lack in Lexington, but we are very fortunate and privileged to have one of the best locally owned and operated Co-Op's in the nation. Support healthy choices--and choices is the key here--by shopping, and even becoming a member of Good Foods. Check out their wonderful recipes and their cafe dining is one of my favorites in town. Thanks to everyone who works so hard at Good-Foods and conrgatulations on your current expansion of the store--including the rumor that there might soon be a second store. Inspiring news in a society dominated by corporate food stores.)

we were part of a food-buying co-op (until the only distributor went bankrupt).

it would be great if Dialogic held informal posts -- on how to start a community co-op ...

We live in a major metro area -- have connections to interested group ...

If only I lived closer, I'd be there! (BTW, I love the feel of Dialogic this year :))

Thanks Toggleswitch,

I'm becoming much more comfortable with myself--I think it is the influence of two great female friends who are working with me to be more open about my feelings instead of always just operating in the rational world. They have also been encouraging me to think about my spiritual/philosophical side...

Thanks Starrider and (what should we call our other friend?)
