The Nelson Organic Co-op formed with the purpose of purchasing the Organic Green Grocer (established in Nelson in 1993).Â TheÂ Nelson Organic Co-op vision is to beÂ a vibrant part of sustaining Nelsonâ€™s organic future. From a solid base the Co-op isÂ developing a hub for a healthy organic lifestyle. Our community will have a place that offers affordable groceries, wholefoods, a scrumptious cafÃ© menu and a place to gather, share and learn.
The Nelson Organic Co-op steering group launched on Sunday 17 October, when it invitedÂ people to join the co-operative community. The steering group needed an interim website to help them recruit members – and they needed it fast and almost for free. Write Across Media assessed their needs (and budget) and quickly developed a website using the DIY platform WIX.
