Willmar, Minn., community-owned grocery to host grower Q & A today
WILLMAR -- The Willmar Community-Owned Grocery will host a grower question-and-answer from 4:30 to 6 p.m. today at the Willmar Public Library.
The session will be led by Erik Larson of the St. Peter food cooperative and one of the cooperative's growers, Adam Ellefson of Living Land Farm. They will share information about a day in the life of a natural foods produce manager and a local foods supplier to the store.
The COG currently has more than 100 members and is working on securing a location for a community-owned grocery in downtown Willmar. Three hundred member-owners are needed before a lease or purchase can be made.
