Wondering if there would be any interest out there for creating a food coop in the Sanford ME/Rochester NH area. Have not seen any, and have never set one up before, so if someone has some insights as to how to start one, or if interested in starting one, please respond here. Thank you.
Cooperative Maine will be happy to help any way we can.
