Laura Lasorda, one of the founders of the Yelm Food Co-op reports,
New community projects have been in gestation for awhile and it is time to make them bloom…
This expansion includes some potential facets that have aspects that can complement each other to the better understanding and efficient production of our own sustainable growing.
HERE IS A LIST OF PROJECTS ALREADY UNFOLDING:
This is a commercial community kitchen facility to be created in order to facilitated the local production of natural local food, or preserved food, that some people in the community desire to elaborate for sale, trade, or for themselves.
It s a central place in town where we could all bring our own produce, like vegetable, meets, cheeses, eggs, and processed salsas, breads, cookies, etc. We could also have arts, crafts and any other good quality product that benefit the community.
This is a place where by sharing the knowledge about farming, cooking, canning, business, cheese making, lotion making, wild edible herbs, etc. we can educate our selves, and facilitate the creation of new business and jobs for our people.
Farming and Green Houses:
This is a potential association project where we can increase our natural harvest by intensification of farming and investing in the creation of green houses that will expand our production and harvest by extending the warmer time. Therefore not being dependent on other states or countries for our food, and leaving our money in the community creating abundance.
The more we buy from our neighbors and our neighbors buy from us, the more sovereign, healthy, abundant, and wise our community becomes.
The Yelm Food Coop was started several years ago where feeding our people with the best food possible was the goal. Educating ourselves about the importance of local production, especially about the healthy aspects of fresh local food, and the magnificent concept of helping each others businesses is a worthy goal.
Aaron Rodriguez will also come and speak about some of these projects. He has experience as the president of the board for the Tacoma Farmers Market, and is currently the manager of the Yelm Food Co-op.
A community that feeds and nourishes its people, is a happy, healthy, and abundant family who knows how to be alive and well in the future.
Please feel free to share this invitation with your friends and neighbors.We welcome you, your skills, creativity, and ideas.
