WHAT:  Field trip to the GREAT BASIN COMMUNITY FOOD CO-OP GROCERY STORE.

WHO:  10 years old and up.  The information being presented during the tour is geared for teens and tweens.  If you have younger children and would like to attend, please contact Olga at sunnymommy3@yahoo.com.  If there is some space still available after our teen and tween families have had a chance to register, she will contact you.


ABOUT:  The Great Basin community co-op is Reno's community-owned grocery store!  The Co-op, owned and operated by its member owners, stocks selections of natural, local, and organic foods, and focuses on environmental awareness and involvement in community education projects. 

FROM THE COORDINATOR:  "We're excited to have you come and learn more about Nevada's only community owned Grocery Store!  First, you'll get to check out our edible landscape and learn what grows best in our region.  Then, we're going to give you a tour of our entire facility where you'll get to see our commercial grade kitchen as well as meet our buyers- who are looking forward to giving you delicious samples from each department- all while learning about our history, our local food shed, and our over 75 local producers and growers!"


WHEN:  THURSDAY, JULY 11th, 10:00 am to 11:30 am.

COST: $3.25 per person. 

PARKING:  On Flint Street (from Ridge to Pickard), there is free 3 hour parking, which is literally only a block away from the Co-op.  Or, across Arlington (to the West) on Court Street, there is usually lots of FREE parking, but it is a bit farther and you do have to cross the street (there is a cross walk).  Also, if you don't want to take the walk, there is paid parking on the street at $1.00 per hour.  For a map of the location, click here

R.S.V.P.  Please register and make payment via PayPal ASAP, as space is limited.
