We are making slow-but-steady progress towards our membership goals of 1,000 member-owners by mid-August. As of the last day of June, we have 731 member-owners. That is a LOT of member-owners, but it’s short of our goal of 850 by the first day of summer on June 21st.
What does this mean? It means we have to get out in the community and spread the word this summer!
— Denver’s farmers’ markets have just started up in recent weeks, and we are scheduled at two nearby markets, the Stapleton Fresh Market and City Park Esplanade Fresh Market, on the first and second Sundays of the month, respectively. We are still looking for volunteers for some of these events, so please click on one of the locations listed to sign up to help!
— We are holding biweekly “Meet & Greet” events at local breweries to give people the opportunity to ask questions and to become member-owners in person. Keep an eye on our Facebook page for our next event, and help us spread the word by tagging friends, marking that you’re “interested”, and sharing the event on your page.
— We are working to deliver a yard sign to every member-owner, and have so far delivered over 200 signs. We still have over 500 to go, so if you have a couple hours to help deliver signs, please sign up here!
Your co-op is working hard to educate people about what the community is working to build and to add to our growing member-owner roster. Please let us know if you have time to give, even an hour, to support YOUR co-op. There’s lots to do and the more of us who chip in, the closer we will get to our goals, and to opening OUR store!
If you have are interested in volunteering or have ideas of other ways to get the word out, please email our Outreach Coordinator, Anneli, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
