Jon Steiman will be stopping by the Catonsville Cooperative Market to be discussing his new book, Grocery Story: The Promise of Food Co-ops in the Age of Grocery Giants, by New Society Publishers. We are grateful to be joined by Jon to guide us in this discussion and the discoveries he made while writing and researching his book.
Jon will have a book signing and open discussion from 4:30PM-5:30PM with a discussion of his book scheduled at 5:30PM in the IUCC Fellowship Hall during our Market. Make sure to plan your shopping trip to include this interesting evening!
“Grocery Story makes a compelling case for how food co-ops, as alternatives to corporate grocery giants, are spurring the creation of delicious local food economies and stronger communities, while changing the global food system for the better.“
We will be hosting a Seed + Plant Swap at this Saturday’s Market! If you have some extra seeds and baby plants to share, bring them and swap for new and exciting additions to your plant community. We will have a table set up outside (weather permitting) for exchange.
We will also have a Master Gardener on site to discuss native plants, vegetable gardening, stormwater management, etc.!
