The June meeting of the Canon Co-op is Sunday, June 20 at 4 pm. The meeting will be held at JC Tamales at 1523 Elm St. next door to Lincoln Park Fitness. The potluck theme is “Dad’s Favorites.” The program will be “Eating Locally in Mexico” by Kevin & Erin Knox.
Gloria Stultz asked that we notify our co-op members that the Pueblo WeRecycle will be at farmer’s market on June 19, July, 17, August 21, and September 21 from 9:00 to 12:30. They will take everything recyclable—paper, plastic (#1-7), aluminum, cardboard, and glass—no styrofoam, please. They ask that we bring our recyclables in a recyclable container. They suggest cardboard boxes or plastic containers that we can empty and then take home. If you have a plastic bag they will dump it and return it to you. There will be a nominal fee. Please try and participate—if we have enough interest in Canon, we very possibly could have our own disposal center within the year.
The program committee has been busy this past month. They have been working on setting up programs for meetings and other classes each month for the next 8 months. Look for a flyer soon to come with all the information on these educational opportunities.
The Farmer’s Market has started and the Co-op has a stand right on Macon Avenue east of the library. Come see us, we’re much bigger than last year and there is a new feature this year. “Ask a Master Gardener” where you can fill out a form with your gardening questions and a master gardener will get back to you with an answer.
