[Green Trust Fun] Potsdam NY Food Co-Op, Annual Open House

33 years ago, the Potsdam Food Co-Op opened it’s doors. My parents were early members. I remember re-packaging bulk foods and slicing cheese as a kid. This year’s annual open house was a big success. Soap Samples from Sunfeather, bread from the Co-Op owned woodfired oven bakery, healthy soda alternatives made with juice. Homemade icecream and applecider, stew and salad, all made with organic food from the co-op. The live music was good, the rain held off, and the temps were in the mid 70′s. Hazy and overcast, it was a lot of fun for the whole family.

Staying Clean

Working with veggie, oils and grime often get on hands and clothes. Working with biofuels and biodiesel, we’ve discovered that soapmakers and biodieseler’s have a lot in common, and some do both. We have been using a line of natural soaps from Countryside Soap Shoppe with great results. We get clean, we smell better, we are doing something good for the environment, and good for our skin. Biodegradeable, and even the labels are made with soy ink. Our favorite is the “Ocean Mist” glycerin bar soap. Check them out!
