Supporting our family from El Salvador PDF Print E-mail

Isabel & Ana WilliamsYou may recognize these two sisters, Isabel and Ana.  They’re both dedicated Brattleboro Co-op members.  You can often see them in our store, or on the streets of our town.  The story they have to tell is incredible.  

They have come to us for help.  Isabel writes: “as I’ve reached out for support the co-op has always been there for me when I’ve need special accommodations and for that I am always grateful.”  
We hope we can rise to the challenge of these kind words.

In  1981 when they were very small they were taken from their birth mother in El Salvador against her will: they’re among the disappeared children of the Salvadoran Civil War.  Now, after a lifetime apart, they are reuniting here in Brattleboro.  

If you speak of Spanish, the co-op is offering Shareholder work credits in exchange for helping to serve as a translator during their mother’s visit in first days of June.

Please take a moment to watch this from their birth mother, Ester:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LMi8SSG7AKI

All inquiries about how to become involved should be directed to JoAnn at 802-451-6278.  

In Isabel’s words: “as I’ve reached out for support the co-op has always been there for me when I’ve need special accommodations and for that I am always grateful.”

We hope that through this we can play some small part in this powerful story.  Thank you for your support!

Producer of the Month: Vermont Compost Company PDF Print E-mail

by Sabine Rhyne
May 2015

 Vermont Compost founder Karl Hammer is one of those people who stick with you. Truly, five minutes into a conversation with him, and there you go, down the chutes of human history by way of Andean farming, jackasses (the furry kind with big ears), and soil biology. Along with the folks who started working with the land in Vermont in the 1970s, Karl began a lifelong experiment to explore the magic of life through soil. He started as a farmer in Vershire, and began working on the best possible recipes for manure compost mixes for his own business. Over time, he became more and more involved with understanding the complexity of soil health for various plant applications, and began focusing most of his energy on experimenting and improving his plant media. His goal is now to provide the best possible soils for certified organic farm production far and wide. Vermont Compost is, in fact, most widely used by farmers, specifically over 400 professional organic growers, with retail sales being a relatively small part of the business. This ensures that home gardeners like Brattleboro Food Co-op customers benefit from the care and attention that the Vermont Compost Company crew gives their mixes, care that those large farms count on.

We Are Gaining Momentum

Since April of 2014, the journey back to the Co-op’s accustomed fiscal strength has been positive and encouraging, yet we are not yet where we would like to be. Sales are growing, as can be seen in the accompanying graph, and a substantial upsurge in the rate of new shareholder sign-ups this past year has boosted our steady improvement. In the last nine months, 315 people joined the Co-op, which is about 6% better than the pattern we have seen over the past few years.
We welcome all of our new cooperators, and thank everyone for your continued support!
Note: The 3rd quarter started December 29 and ended on March 29.
