928 News – Spring Issue – March, April, May
Some of the scintillating reading in this issue of the newsletter: "Doors & Windows" by Christina Nicholson; "Shifting Gears" by Kate Gray; "Emerging Trends and a Commitment to Place" by Lucia Cowles; and "Earth Day Starts at Home" by Robin Asbell, courtesy of StrongerTogether.coop.
We have a sneak peak at Mayfest plants, grown by Glacial Ridge Growers in central Minnesota, and a check list of our edibles so you can plan your dream garden.
There is info about groups we're supporting with our register round-ups, and some events:

Also, find a sandwich menu from Deli. Hang it on your home fridge or work bulletin board and always know which days your favorites are available (of course, while they last).
Plus, we have staff picks for local products from Linda Andersen (Cheese), Theresa Ener (Meat), Ikuko Hara (Wellness), Matt Hass (Grocery), and Melissa Lindholm (Produce).
And last, but not least, the discount coupons for member-owners. You can also read the newsletter online as a pdf.
