Our first client shout-out goes to a group of people that have been working so hard to create a co-op grocery store in Racine, Wisconsin.
Wild Root Market is run by a Board of Directors that is made up of 10 Member-Owners who serve the co-op on a volunteer basis for three year terms. Directors’ terms are staggered for continuity. Directors are elected annually to the Board by the Member-Owners.
These individuals bring a variety of skills, knowledge and ideas to the drawing board to help turn this dream into a reality. I have been blessed to work with them for almost 4 years now!
“Our mission is to enhance the quality of life and economic vitality of southeastern Wisconsin through the sustainable operation of a full-service, cooperatively owned grocery store serving its community, employees and owners while working as a part of a stronger local food system”
If you are interested in finding out more information or how you can become a Member-Owner, please feel free to visit their website or Facebook page.
From our computer to yours, let’s get creative!
