The season to give thanks is quickly falling upon us, and I feel more grateful than ever to be part of our beautiful community.
As the new Marketing and Education Manager for the Ashland Food Co-op, my personal and professional values have become balanced.
The Co-op has been a place for me to connect with other community members, to recharge the health and wellness of my body, and to find farmers and producers offering nutrient rich foods that fuel my family’s active lifestyle.
My main focus for next year will be to elevate our product experiences through a more robust product sampling calendar and create more events focusing around community celebrations, culinary, art, and outdoor recreation. I will be exploring user-friendly technology and digital marketing opportunities to reduce printing waste, allow us to connect with new customer segments, and to keep our current owners and friend’s of the Co-op educated and updated on all of the great things happening at our Co-op.
Also, watch for all of the great things our team will be doing with re-branding our store in 2019.
I look forward to meeting more of my community members at our store and at future events.

Ashland Food Co-op is a consumer cooperative that operates for the benefit of our owners. It’s simple to own your share of the Co-op. Just make a one-time, refundable equity investment of $100. You may pay in full or make an initial $10 payment! You’ll be reminded at the register when another quarterly $10 payment is due until your $100 equity purchase is paid. In return, the Co-op pledges to operate for the long-term health of our community. Unlike most businesses that make decisions primarily to maximize profits, cooperatives make decisions to maximize service to their owners and the community.
