Anyone here a member of the Greene Hill Food Co-op in Brooklyn? This co-op is 100% member-owned and -operated, so membership is mandatory ($175 for each adult in your household) and every member is required to work 2 hours every 4 weeks. It's still a small operation (it's only open two days a week!) but it's growing. And the more people who join, the more robust it will become!

If you're not a member but work/live nearby, you should join! In addition to the website, you can also find them on Twitter and Facebook.

I just worked my first shift ("Receiving") this morning (8-10AM). It was surprisingly fun! I stocked/arranged the produce, updated the price tags, and cleaned up. Then it was time to shop! Most of the produce is local (from a farm in Lancaster, PA) and organic. And all of it is delicious :)

congrats, I hadn't realized it was happening! I work at 4th Street Food Co-op, I can help you spread the word about Greene Hill with our blog and FB, etc. Co-ops are fun!
