For those new to The Beet, check out our website for more info on our Mission, Vision, and Working Groups. Not only are we working hard on developing Programming and Outreach, we are making connections with farmers, vendors, community organizations, and volunteers. We plan to spend 2013 fundraising in earnest (in addition to much more fun!) and then to open the doors of the co-op by mid-2014.
