FACEBOOK – Opportunity to help!
Many of you have told me that you can't volunteer due to your work/family schedule and I completely understand. You've also asked what else can I do help out the co-op? Here's one way that will really help us out – if you are on Facebook or other social media please consider posting a pic of your co-op goodies! I have a very limited marketing budget and really depend on word of mouth advertising. Please feel free to spread the word about our wonderful market! Tag us @SuwaneeWholeLife

Thank you in advance for your support!
