I visited with other members of Just Food Co-op, who were invited to the Public Library to hear an update on progress and planning for the new co-op. We also met the new manager, Stuart Reid, and other Co-op staff. After a brief discussion visitors were shown the dvd, “Sweet Soil: Local
Farmers & the Berkshire Co-op Market” about the cooperation of the Berkshire food co-op and local New England family farmers to bring fresh organic produce and other food products to local consumers. It showed the important community building connection between local producers and consumers.

Here I am studying the latest floor plan.

This is a photo from a previous blog of the new space, ready for construction. You might recognize it, as the Dollar store, or those of you with a longer Northfield memory may remember it, as the Red Owl Store.

As of July 16th Just Food has signed on 564 of their 750 member goal.
