Help a tasty idea grow to fruition: The Delridge Produce Co-op

February 4, 2009 at 2:44 pm | In Delridge, How to help, West Seattle news | 2 Comments

We’ve told you before about the King County Food and Fitness Initiative, focused — among other things — on making fresh, healthy food more available in the Delridge and White Center areas. One idea to help make that reality is the proposed Delridge Produce Co-op, and organizer Galena White is hoping to hear from anyone who would like to get involved. She just launched a website with information; from the opening page: “My goal is to see a storefront filled with a variety of inexpensive organic produce on Delridge before 2010.” You can see the website here; get in touch with Galena if you’d like to help make the co-op dream come true.

  2. We’ve ordered produce from the High Point Market Garden now for the past 8 or 9 years, and love it. They are also sponsored by DNDA.

    For those who don’t know, the Market Garden is located at 32nd and Juneau, and employs several low-income southeast Asian immigrants to do what they do best–farm. It’s all organic and extremely affordable, and the best part is everyone wins. I’m sure the farmers there will be a great resource in your effort to expand the availability of fresh, organic produce in Delridge. Great idea!
