Our East store Garden Center has recently been transformed by the sights and smells of the season. Pine cones, greens, live conifers, and Christmas trees grace the approach to our large East Bloomingfoods, and you’ll find greens of the season at the other locations, too.
When we first imagined the East Garden Center, one goal was to make it a destination in December, a favorite place for acquiring natural holiday adornments. JD Lucas, Linnea Good, and Chris Bobbitt—staff in this department—bring a wealth of knowledge about the great outdoors, as well as connections to local and regional providers.
Find local, small producer, cooperatively owned and traded products at Bloomingfoods.
Food co-ops have long brought nourishing, fresh food to our communities. At Bloomingfoods, we’ve defined ourselves as cooperative trade leaders with a focus on local, sustainable, organic, and fairly traded foods.
Our commitment to these values demonstrates our members’ concerns for positive environmental impacts, better health, and strong local economies. We became a founding member of The Principle Six (P6) initiative in 2010, in order to join other co-ops in featuring products and companies that embody these values.
Demolition was the name of the game in Elm Heights from Wednesday through Friday. Here are a few images. It was an impressive process, the relentless maw of the excavator snatching bite after bite from the old building, chewing it briefly, then spitting it into a dumpster. By end of Thursday the building was down, and Friday was devoted mainly to cleaning up. Monday begins the breaking up and hauling off of the cement slab.
