I just joined the Oklahoma Food Co-op! I've been wanting to do this for years but funds were so low as a grad student that even just $50 to sign up was out of my budget! I used some of our wedding bling to sign up and now I'm trying to figure out what our first order will be! Yippee!

Seriously, I interviewed Bob Waldrop, the founder and President twice for my research on activism - once for the thesis and once for the dissertation. He is a phenomenal guy, just a powerhouse, and such an inspiration. He's up there with Carrie Dickerson (who I also interviewed twice, brag, brag) in terms of Okie activists! I have such incredible, exuberant respect and awe for that man. And last night I saw him featured on OETA's Stateline. Cool!

Yippee! Local food! Yippee! Farm fresh goodness! Yippee! Smaller carbon footprint!

I've ordered eggs (high priority to ensure hens are not miserable) and buckets of wheat berries ($12/25 lbs) and 3-lb honey (comes in cute little mini-milk jug). MUST order eggs first day of order or likely to run out.

It's the $50 that keeps us from joining, too. We're not students anymore, but there always seems to be something going on that requires we live on a budget. Plus, we live so close to the OSU OKC farmer's market.
