Lefferts Farm Food Co-op Meeting Tomorrow

The folks trying to bring a Slope-style food co-op to Crown Heights, Prospect Lefferts Gardens, and Flatbush are having a general meeting tomorrow night, January 21st, at the Maple Street School (off the Parkside stop on the B-Q at 21 Lincoln Rd) at 7pm. The Lefferts Farm Food Cooperative is dreaming big--one organizer estimates that putting together a grocery store of the caliber they want could cost upwards of $1 million once everything is factored in--but their plan is getting attention in the blogosphere and earning chatter on Brooklynian. If you'd like to see something like this in the neighborhood, check out tomorrow's meeting.

Also, if you have skills of the web-design or media-relations variety, consider attending their Communications Committee meeting on the 28th (more information available on their website).

  1. It is so fascinating that the Lefferts Farm Food Cooperative is dreaming big--one organizer estimates that putting together a grocery store of the caliber they want could cost upwards of $1 million once everything is factored in--but their plan is getting attention in the blogo sphere and earning chatter on Brook lynian.
