Revolt! No Legal Marijuana! Well, Then Make Home Brewed Wine!

MY VERY FIRST ATTEMPT AT HOME BREWED WINE!

Oh, my deceased mother would be proud! She used to make dandelion wine.

Well, what do you do when the State of Vermont Legislature doesn't vote to pass a bill to make marijuana legal?

 I went through my freezer, I was out of anything chocolate, my first line of comfort.

Brattleboro Food Co-op Seeks Input on Two Design Projects

The Brattleboro Food Co-op is looking for participants in two focus groups this month to solicit feedback and generate ideas for two endeavors currently underway: the Co-op’s Bulk department is being updated, and a new website is currently being designed.  

The Bulk department focus group will take place on Wednesday the 22nd from 5 to 6pm, and the website group on Thursday the 30th, 4:30-5:30pm.  “We care deeply about our customers and our community; as a consumer-owned cooperative, we have to, because we’re literally owned by them!  We also have a lot of respect for what they’re able to bring to the table,” says Marketing and Community Relations Manager Jon Megas-Russell.  “The more input and involvement we have from our owners and shoppers the better our store will be.”
