There's Still Time to Become a Member!

We're in the last stages of getting everything ready to open Local Roots Market in early November. But we're still missing something absolutely critical to the success of our business:


We invite you to become a member of Wooster Local Foods Cooperative, Inc. (if you haven't already). We've made it easy: all the information about membership is available online, with a simple one-page membership agreement.

Memberships cost $50 for one year ($25 for students with valid ID), and if you sign up now, that year won't begin until we open. Lifetime memberships are available at the $1,000 level. (We are still accepting volunteer members -- 5 hours gets you a year's membership -- but we really do need the money to cover the cooperative's operations.)

What benefits do you get from your membership?

--A share in the year-end profit distribution at the co-op
--Use of the online order system
--Reduced or free admission to events and workshops

But there are deeper benefits, too: you can take an active part in revitalizing the local economy, in supporting local agriculture, and in bringing healthier and more nutritious food to your family's table.

If you think, as we do, that there are serious problems with our food system in America today, here's your chance to become part of the solution!

Won't you join us and help us grow Local Roots?
