Co-op Connection News

July, 2014

We are independent! At La Montanita we believe true independence comes from vibrant connections to our community, environment, and economy. As a co-op, we rely on our neighbor farmers, regional ranchers and local artisans to provide our stores with fresh, flavorful, healthy food and products. Partnering with these producers means we are independent from many of the unsustainable systems required to bring us food from far off places. Through our support, these community-oriented entrepreneurs can be independent businesses and can prioritize the environment, animal welfare, and public health. This way of doing business allows us to celebrate abundance today without compromising future generations’ ability to do the same. This is our community.

Celebrate your independence! Thank you, if you are already a member/ owner! If not, join us and have a voice in what is important for a healthy future: organic food free of chemicals, hormones, and GMOs; sustainable, fair and humane ranching and farming practices; local folks who love what they do and pass it on to the rest of us. Become a member/owner and help direct a future where we all can live well! Only $15 per year—$1.25 a month!

And, now you can get many of the Co-op Connection articles on our Community blog!
