My Co-op Family - Livin' the Good Life

11:35 am - My Co-op Family

Previous Entry Share Next Entry

Last night we had our monthly food co-op meeting in my living room. We're a group that has been getting together for about 20 years. There are only 5 core women in this group. Others have come and gone. I just love these women. They are like family to me, and though the co-op has been faltering lately, I plan to hang in there till its last gasp. Because these women show up for me, I'll continue to show up for them. Besides, I've watched their children grow up! They watched mine grow up. I know their spouses and the troubles they endured. It's more than a food-buying group. It's a group of long-time friends that meets once a month to talk.... and, oh yes, buy organic food together. Thanks, friends, for hanging in there with me. You are the salt of the earth.

I wish we had something like that here. Or maybe we do but I don't know about it. I do have about 45 people pick up their organic vegetables off our front porch every Wednesday, but I'd love a buying group for other things.
