Producer of the Month: Bee's Wrap, Inspiration and Commitment Everyday PDF Print E-mail

by Christine Holderness
August 2015

For thousands of years, beeswax has had a wide variety of applications. It has been found in the pyramids of Egypt, in Roman ruins, and within Viking ships. In fact, honey in ancient times was secondary to the production of beeswax. It is a mythic, almost magical, creation—metaphoric gold spun by individual honeybees from the nectar of flowers.
Sarah Kaeck, 40, is the energetic founder of Bee’s Wrap. She lives north of Middlebury, VT, with her husband and three young children. Like the honeybee she is a creator of things and solver of problems.

It is clear that many of you actually do read the newsletter. It was only July 2, but I got immediate feedback from the July Food for Thought seeking input regarding several matters. It was not too surprising that my suggestion for participants to gather and discuss our discount options as they relate to the goals of the Co-op got the most immediate response. “Don’t you take away the senior discount!” “If you mess with our discount, there will be a revolt right out front!”  
First of all, thank you all for reading our newsletter. It’s good to know that you find it worthwhile. We really appreciate that, those of us who put a fair amount of energy into making it happen.

It seems obvious that we should be paying very close attention to this problem.

Board of Directors Report: Community Involvement PDF Print E-mail

August 2015

I joined the Co-op board last November with a single-minded devotion to expanding access to the Co-op for folks with lower incomes. When my son was young I fed the two of us from the Co-op on our food stamp budget and I wanted my community to understand that it was possible. What I hadn’t realized was that we already had an incredible array of programs that do that very thing, and a myriad of folks from across the economic spectrum that think of the Co-op as “their” grocery store.
