"The Yelm Food Co-op: A Greater Vision"
"Is the idea of a food sustainable community really that absurd? If you had asked me that a week ago on one of my fast food excursions, I would have said, “Absolutely! Just the thought of a community not drooling over Big Macs, steeped in grease, is absurd.” But, in actuality, the town of Yelm is growing ever closer to reaching that goal; one set forth by the Yelm Food Co-op."
"Truth is, I’m not a scientist; I’m just a writer, but I do have common sense. I know pollution isn’t good. And I know that if we allow corporate models to dictate how and when we get food, we become much too vulnerable. It’s never too late to make a difference, to make changes for a brighter future. It’s time to take action, and the Yelm Food Co-op has made one of the very first steps toward this greater vision."
