Producer of the Month- The Garlic Project PDF Print E-mail

by Vicky Dibe
September 2012

In November 2011, over 50 fifth-grade students came together for the love of garlic.  Well, many of them had a love of garlic. But the vision of the project was that the students would really get to participate in the life cycle of a crop from start to finish. The classrooms from Oak Grove, Academy School, Green Street, and Hilltop Montessori were all involved in this new venture.  It started with a visit to each classroom by a local vampire who discussed some of garlic's history and folklore, followed by investigation stations where each student dissected various members of the Liliaceae family (onions, leeks, garlic, and tulips) to discover each plant's anatomy.  Who knew that garlic cloves are actually the bottom part of the plant's leaves?  Does anyone believe that garlic can actually repel mosquitoes?

Producer of the Month: Commonwealth Dairy PDF Print E-mail

August 2012
by Hannah Aleshnick

Tucked away from major throughways, between native oaks and juvenile Japanese maples, in a complex with Omega Optical, a branch of the Austine School, and a residential community, Commonwealth Dairy is subtle and unassuming.

Brattleboro Food Co-op, A New Cornerstone in Our Community PDF Print E-mail

 June, 2012

This story bears repeating: we have a brand-new, thoughtfully-built four-story building in the heart of downtown Brattleboro, which will provide housing and food to the downtown area. This investment in our local community was made carefully, and was carried out despite the economic recession that we have been struggling through. Only a cooperative would take this bold a step, employing so many, partnering with other community organizations, and ensuring that our downtown will continue to be vibrant and compelling to all who pass through here.
Long live the Cooperative Difference!
