Community invited to co-op organizational meeting

CLEARLAKE – The Clearlake Community Co-op started with a vision, then a hum then a buzz around the lake.


The first meeting was attended by about 50 local citizens.


Many ideas were brainstormed at the first meeting. It was decided by general consensus to begin the focus of energy in five general areas:


• Local resource guide of producers and services;


• Organic community gardens;


• Buyers club as a stepping stone to a retail co-op (co-op literature tells us this can take up to two years to open the doors);


• Organic gardening education opportunities;


• Farmer's market in Clearlake.


All of these are tied to a commitment to support local organic farmers/producers whenever possible and to be available to as many people in community as possible.

 

The next meeting will be on Saturday, Feb. 9 at 10 a.m. at the Hot Spot Youth Activity Center at 4750 Golf Avenue in Clearlake.


The meeting is open to the public and anyone interested in hearing more about what they are doing or interested in joining this exciting group is welcome to attend.

 

The agenda will include discussion about a name for the co-operative and developing a vision statement for the co-op.


Also, Allen Markowski will give a brief instructional presentation on navigating Wiki spaces.
