This Saturday, June 28, the Co-op will have an informational booth at The Grand Rapids Water Festival. The Water Festival will be going on ALL DAY at Riverside Park. Be sure to stop by the festival. At the festival you'll be able to eat some local food from some of the vendors, listen to Michigan-based bands (folk, jazz, country, soul, blues, gospel and rock n’ roll) and buy some local art. Check it out at grandrapidswaterfestival.com.
On July 2 at 7 pm we will be at the Wealthy Theatre educating the city on the importance of eating local food. We're teaming up with Common Lens and Slow Foods Potawatomi Convivum to present the provocative and thought-provoking documentary "Genetically Modified Food: Panacea or Poison." The Common Lens Series is made possible by the support of the Dyer-Ives Foundation. Find out more at http://www.grcmc.org/theatre/.
