Hi LMC Volunteers!
The 24th Celebrate the Earth Fest is right around the corner, and we need you!
This year we will be a zero-waste event. Ski of Knowaste (www.knowaste.net) will be joining us to help make sure we compost as much of our trash as possible!
In addition to Knowaste Rangers, we will also need volunteers to help out with coordination activiites throughout the day. Including Knowaste Rangers, we will need 6 volunteers for three hour time slots from 7am to 7pm.
For volunteering, you will get to hangout at a great party and three 18% discount cards.
Because we need many people to help on this day, if you have a friend who hasn't volunteered for the co-op before, but might be interested, please share this invitation with them!
When you click on Volunteer, select the time you would like to work by using the Event Dates menu in the upper right hand corner on the invite.
When & Where
La Montanita Co-op
La Montanita Co-op is a community-owned, consumer cooperative with three (and a forth coming soon) locations in Albuquerque, one in Santa Fe, and one in Gallup. All stores offer fresh organicproduce, bulk foods, local organic beef, lamb and other meats and cheeses, fair trade products and a wide variety of natural and organic groceries, freshly prepared deli foods, natural body care, vitamins and supplements.
The Co-op continues its decades long commitment to local farmers and producers with its regional Co-op Trade Food-Shed Project. This initiative is creating wholesale markets and providing product pick-up and distribution, supply delivery service and refrigerated storage for local farmers and producers. With over 1100 local products from approximately 400 local producers and 20% of total purchases and sales in local food, the Co-op is a leader in the local foods movement.
While we serve over 14,000 Co-op member owners, we also seek to serve the larger community through ongoing education on the importance of the cooperative economic model and on the links between food, health and the environment.
