Help Us Put Our New Community Space to Good Use!

We’re now building our first schedule of classes, skill-swaps, meet-ups & more!

We look forward to doing so much more as Rochester’s food co-op at our new location at 571 South Avenue. An important part of that vision comes in the shape of the brand new community room that is being built as you read this. Our goal is to see what is successful and what is not, and then go from there over the course of the coming year.

Classes, how-tos & skill-sharing

We conducted a survey in our store in November to see what classes customers, owners, and staff would find valuable. A quick snapshot of some of the suggestions shows just how many possibilities there are:

  • fermenting
  • how to make kombucha
  • vegan and vegetarian cooking classes
  • how to prepare different veggies
  • small space planning
  • intro to gardening
  • sewing
  • how to compost
  • nutritional literacy
  • plus many, many more

We are currently building out the initial schedule of classes, events, and meet-ups for the community space. We plan to have a mix of free and paid programming for classes.

Meet-ups & gatherings

Our community is teeming with organizations doing good things. The community space will available to those that need somewhere to meet
(or do) on a regular basis. Rochester nonprofits and community organizations are encouraged to use this space. Please be aware that there will be a limited number of time slots available in the initial schedule, so be sure to get in touch as quickly as possible if you are interested.

While we hope to book a variety of activities in the space, it will not be available for outside commercial purposes.
