There are moments that remind me just how precious small town life is. Tonight we attended the first meeting regarding the establishment of a local food co-op. Thanks to the generosity of Shahid Mustafa of Mountain View Co-op in Las Cruces, we have guidance with a great deal of experience. I was particularly fascinated to find a local cattle guy there. I believe he was interested in providing locally grown beef. Yes to democratically run natural grocery, better ethics, purer ingredients and to supporting companies that demonstrate integrity! And yes to food security in S. New Mexico!
