It takes a neighborhood to build a co-op!

We have come to the end of our wonderful Winter Farmer’s Market!  Thank you all for supporting season three of this local initiative!  As we move into spring and our summer programming, we are excited about continuing the work of building our membership. As we all know, our growing membership is the evidence to our funders and building partners that this project has community support. 

To this end, we are excited to announce the “It Takes a Neighborhood to Build a Co-op” Spring Membership Drive!   From April 1 until Dorchester Day in June, we are asking each member to recruit one member (or more) into the Co-op.  Once you do this, you and the person you recruit will both  be entered into a raffle to win exciting prizes!  Currently we have 342 member households. Help us reach 500 by June!  Together, we can do this!

Not a member yet? If you join now you will also be entered in the membership raffle. Click HERE for more details about the co-op. To join on line–just look for the Join Now column on the right hand side of this page!

A sampling of raffle prizes include gift certificates to:

  • The Blarney Stone Restaurant
  • Sea Breeze Mexican Grill
  • Ashmont Grill
  • Flat Black Cafe
  • Savin Hill Yoga
  • Stitch House
  • Museum of Science
  • Ashmont Cycles 
  • More prizes are being added!

Rules of the Raffle:

Any Co-op member who refers a new member is entered into the raffle
(Referring member and new member must both have a $25 minimum installment payment)

Any person who becomes a member is entered into the raffle
($25 minimum installment payment)

A Co-op member may be entered into the raffle as many times as they refer a new member
(increasing your odds of winning a prize!)

The drawing will occur in June on Dorchester Day—members can only win one prize, and drawing will continue until all prizes are distributed.

Happy recruiting and let’s build this Co-op!
