Owner Appreciation Weekends
One of the best perks of ownership in the Co-op! Owner Appreciation Weekends are our quarterly way of saying thanks. All owners in good standing receive 10% off their purchases (excluding consignment items). The owner is considered to be in good standing when their owner share payments are current or paid in full.

Bylaws Guide Our Future

Owner Education Series
With the winter months upon us, you may be looking for a new project to keep our green thumbs active. “Growing microgreens indoors is a fun and relatively easy project to set up,” says Austin Little, University of Illinois Extension horticulture educator. “It also rewards the grower with fresh tasty produce in a short time period.” In this program we’ll cover the basic set up for growing micro greens at home along with some tips for a harvesting and culinary use.
Horticulture Educator, Austin Little oversees horticulture programming with the University of Illinois Extension. He is instrumental in working with the Master Gardener and Master Naturalist volunteer programs. Little is available to assist the community and answer questions on a variety horticulture related topics including home gardening, residential and commercial horticulture, small-scale fruit and vegetable production and urban agriculture, soil fertility, integrated pest management as well as landscaping.
