What started out as an intriguing idea has bloomed into a full-scale, shared mission. A mission to build an indispensable co-operative community within Nelson.
To achieve this the Nelson Organic Co-op was set up to allow locals to contribute their time, knowledge and money to collectively purchase the Organic Green Grocer; Nelson's original organic store.
With the store now purchased we celebrated the opening on Saturday 7th May. Now there are a lot of plans to complete.
We would love to hear your thoughts, ideas and comments about the next stage of our journey so come on in for a chat!
Also, watch this space - some exciting things are about to happen. Anyone heard of Pledgeme? Well word on the street is that the Nelson Organic Co-operative has had a crowdfunding application approved!
