URGENT MEMBER NOTICE FROM HOMEGROWN!


HOMEGROWN IS OFFICIALLY UNDER NEW MANAGEMENT AND HAS A NEW BOARD OF DIRECTORS WHO ARE READY TO WORK HARD TO IMPROVE OUR OPERATIONS AND SERVE YOU BETTER!

Homegrown Co-op has been actively providing Central Floridians access to locally produced, organic and natural products since 2007, and for the first time, we have been forced to temporarily suspend our online Farmers Market. Homegrown has experienced a difficult year, resulting from inconsistencies in leadership and operational problems, including accumulated debt.

In order to become successful in the long term, Homegrown needs to take a brief break to raise funds, streamline operations and improve the online and in-store experience. Our immediate goal is to raise $12,000. With the funds raised, Homegrown will be able to become current with our farmers and food producers. Without payment, food delivery has been put on hold.

When Homegrown is ready to open the online market again, we will be operating only ONE market pick-up day on Wednesdays. The store will remain open until further notice, but only for limited hours. We will be closed Mondays and Tuesdays.

If you love Homegrown’s wonderful farm fresh food and support our mission, please consider donating funds to help us stay open. If your membership has lapsed, please renew it and consider upgrading to a fully-vested membership. You may renew memberships as well as make donations in the store or through our website: www.homegrowncoop.org
