Grow Our Urban Co-op!

Update posted by Geraldine Fitzpatrick On Sep 16, 2020


Fundraising isn't easy in these challenging times but we are determined to see our demo kitchen come to fruition! Between this crowdfunding source and our own 50:50 in house draw we now have raised €2203 which is 11% of our €20,000 goal. Thank you to everyone who has contributed and keep spreading the word!

Another busy week at The Urban Co-op! This pic is to remind us of the simple joys in life we have come to appreciate again. How beautiful are these locally grown flowers! They have lifted the spirits of many customers feeling the effects of lockdown. These are from just one of our many growing suppliers. We have now over 200 local suppliers!! Your contribution does really help us in many ways to grow this community grocery! Thank you for being with us on this journey! Stay well folks!

Grow Our Urban Co-op Update

Greetings from The Urban Co-op amidst the Covid pandemic time! It has been challenging for us all as we faced into the great unknown two months ago! We are only getting to update now..! We celebrated having music in our last update and boy were we glad to have it when the tempo increased sharply! Panic buying and stock supply worries have settled into a full on routine of 7 day retail for wholesome nourishing food. Our footfall has increased 60%! This has meant extra stock, extra staff and a lot of leg work! But what a dedicated team we have and we are more than proud of their resilience shown in this crisis. Your support means alot to keep us all going as we aim to improve this community grocery every week. It is proving to be a calm fruitful place to shop in this crisis and a welcome relief for many. We are glad to help!

I've seen this group grow from a tiny little space into this big, impressive beautiful shop. Run by a group of inspired parents who care deeply about good health and the local community. Their shop reminds me of the co-op that used to exist in Berkeley, California, where I grew up in the 70s...before it transformed into the Whole Foods giant of today. Those early days are so special. Support local farmers, livestock raisers, and eat local!
