A co-operative is a community of individuals and families that come together to share in seasonal foods
and to work together to create a better balance of peace and harmony for all. It's for everyone, and it
is helped run by everyone. Everyone has the ability to contribute in his own way. The boxes are called "shares"
because we buy the food in bulk, and we split it amongst everyone. Because it is seasonal and because it is
a co-operative, people will not always receive exactly what they want or in the quantities they want. It is
learning to share what's available and be cooperative. The best joys can come from being creative with the
unexpected surprises in your box and can come from sharing the most delicious and healthiest of foods with
your friends and family!
