Enjoyed the opportunity to expand on the history of community engagement.
Community Relations Developer (Former Employee) – Burnsville, MN – April 10, 2015
Valley Natural Foods is one of a handful of businesses that have provided space and funding for the community gardens at their business site. This has allowed greater interaction with the members and customers with different aspects of this co-op. The in-store experience of being being able to ask questions and gather trusted information is reflected in the gardening spaces where community members can just as easily ask questions and gain knowledge regarding their gardening concerns. Not a day went by but that someone taught me something, and often it was because of a customer inquiry. I learned much about our local food system, and I feel that Valley Natural Foods is committed to bringing the benefits of the food system to their members, customers and community.
