Our Sister Coop Project

Buffalo Mountain Food Coop has begun a Sister Coop relationship with the Cooperativa Orgánica Madre Tierra which has its headquarters in Hato Rey, Puerto Rico.

A Delegation from Buffalo Mountain is traveling to visit our Sister Coop in Puerto Rico, February 28th through March 5th. The delegation will meet with members of the Puerto Rican cooperative community.  They will help coop members as best they can in multiple ways including clearing away downed trees, planting and rebuilding after the hurricanes. They will then report back to our community here about what they have learned from their experiences.

For those who would like to support this project there is a donation jar on the front counter at the Coop. The Coop is also able to “round-up” your purchases with the change going into a Sister Coop account. Donations by check should be addressed to Wheelock Mountain Farm/ Sister Co-op Project at 91 West Wheelock Road, Greensboro Bend, VT 05842.  Something else to look forward to in the coming months are Sister Coop T Shirts designed by Ken Leslie.
