Our logo

Our logo is here and it feels so good to have an identity after so many meetings and discussions. It seems to make this vision all the more tangible. Amy and John at Williams Group did a wonderful job and having the work donated by such a professional organization is a real gift! We are getting some response from the community and look forward to progressing Grassroots further each week.

Snowy days

Even during these snow filled days, Grassroots continues to meet to figure out a space. funding, etc. for our storefront co-op. A member of our steering committee is currently taking a 6 week course (through Co-op 500) on starting a co-op and other members are encouraged to listen to these webinars, as well. We are taking advantage of this opportunity and seeking out advice from other co-ops and small business owners. We also have a logo, which is very exciting news for us! Williams Group in Grand Rapids, MI was kind enough to donate their time and resources and it feels good to have an identity! We are finalizing the details and will post it as soon as we can!
Enjoy the fluffy snowfall!
