Imagine a store-front food cooperative in our community that provided local and organic food… How great would that be? Well, the Bisman Community Food Co-op is making this a reality!
It’s a start-up fresh food cooperative being created by the community for the community and they recently reached their first major milestone of securing 600 invested member owners. Now, they’re actively looking for a location to open a retail store.
Want to learn more about this new cooperative in our community? Interested in getting involved? Employees are invited to stop by Basin’s Backyard Garden Aug. 7 between 8:30 and 10:30 a.m. to visit with Heidi Demars, Bisman Community Food Co-op outreach coordinator. She’ll be available to answer questions about the cooperative and also help any interested members get signed up. Basin Electric will pay $50 of any employee’s $200 dollar membership investment fee. Demars will also have t-shirts available for sale. If the weather is bad, Demars will be in the boardroom.
When you stop by the garden, enjoy a cup of joe from local coffee company, Mighty Missouri Coffee. The first 50 visitors will also get a muffin from Humble Cottage Farm, a business owned by former Basin Electric employee and BisMan Community Food Co-op board member, Jared Barnhart.
