Dear SLO Natural Foods Co-Op Members and Supporters:
All of us from SLO Natural Foods Co-op thank you for your support this pivotal year. You already know the BIG MOVE is complete. Most of you have seen the wonderful new place that offers more shelf space, more aisle access, a Health and Beauty section and off-street parking. 
 
Rather than spending over $1500 to print and mail this, we decided that email is the most cost effective AND environmentally friendly method to reach our members and supporters. 
 
In addition to getting through the move, we have achieved more than a few milestones:
·         Sales Growth of 28% month over month since the move.
 
·         Training & Development - Our General Manager, Gwen Schmidt, has helped to improve staff training and communication, financial reporting and new product development.  To further her efforts, we received a $3700 grant from the California Cooperative Development Fund and received several donations to provide needed matching funds to bring a nationally known co-op consultant to do training and development with our team Dec 12-14th. We appreciate your patience during this especially busy time as we made an investment in the wonderful and dedicated folks who keep things running.

The 141st annual California State Grange Convention assembled at the newly-painted, spruced-up Sebastopol Grange Oct. 9-13. The hall was nearly full to its capacity of around 150 people at many times. Next year’s Grange is scheduled for San Luis Obispo.

The Grange was founded as a grass-roots, fraternal organization around 1870 to support farmers and ranchers, especially in their struggles against railroad monopolies. Its members then mainly people worked the land; though still focused on agriculture, many of its current members no longer farm and the Grange addresses a wide range of issues.

After a period of decline, in recent year’s Granges throughout California have experienced a resurgence in membership and activities. The Sebastopol Grange, for example, now has around 150 members, most of whom have joined in the last two years. Around 187 Grange chapters exist in California, some more active than others.
