THE MOVING HAS BEGUN AND WE NEED YOUR HELP!

It’s official…we are moving in!  If you have time, a truck or trailer, two hands, a big heart and want to have some moving fun then be sure to take part!

On that note, we could really use YOUR help with the following:

Friday (2/3/12) night fun (beginning at 5pm):  Join Amber’s basement crew to scrape floors, sweep, mop and paint!  (240 Court St.)

Saturday (2/4/12) fun 9am – ??:  Meet Amber & Tony again at 9am at the current site (542 1/2 Plumas St.) to get our office and backstock areas moved over.  Please come ready to pack boxes and move!  If you have a truck or vehicle good for moving that is great :)

ALSO, AT 12:00pm on Saturday (2/4/12) in front of the new store the Reno News and Review is going to be taking pictures for the story that they are doing on the co-op’s opening next week.  We would like to fill this photo with our awesome member-owners!  Please come down for this photo even if you don’t have time to come at any other point.

ALSO ALSO on Saturday (2/4/12), Join Jana Vanderhaar for an Saturday Edible Garden Workshop/work party at the new site (240 Court St.) from either 9am – 12pm or 1pm – 3pm

Edible Landscape Soil Preparation and Irrigation Workshop  —  We’ll be double digging beds, amending and adding soil and compost, and installing drip irrigation.  We’ll also move the raised planters from the old Coop to the new, so some strong muscles and a pick up to haul these would be appreciated!  And we’ll sow cover crops in selected beds to build soil and add some quick green color to the landscape.  Please bring garden tools, gloves, water, and a lunch.

Sunday (2/5/12) fun 9am – ??:  Join Melissa’s crew at the new site to get the bulk and grocery shelving departments set up.  Please come ready to clean set up shelves, clean and organize.

Tuesday (2/7/12), Wednesday (2/8/12) and Thursday (2/9/12) at 5:00am, please come and help all of us to take in our HUGE deliveries from our distributors and get them on the shelves and into the coolers!

UPDATE (02/07/12):
Today’s 5am delivery went well. Let’s do it again tomorrow! There will be more coffee, graciously donated courtesy of Mark Trujillo at The Hub Coffee Roasters

And of course we’ll have loads more product to set in our amazing new home. (Wow, it’s really coming along now.)

Additionally, Jana has requested volunteers to help plant trees tomorrow at 240 Court St. between the hours of 1-5pm.

There will be NO DELIVERY ON THURSDAY but we will be moving things all day from the old store to the new…. Come and hang!

THURSDAY (2/9/12):  THIS IS THE BIG PUSH!  We are closing our store at 542 1/2 Plumas St.  Please show up at the old site at 9am to help us move EVERYTHING from this location to our new spot.  This is a call for ALL HANDS ON DECK…so if you’ve got an hour or two to give then join in the greatbasin-ness!

FRIDAY 2/10/2012:  WE OPEN OUR DOORS AT 8:00am AT @ 240 COURT ST. RENO, NV 89501!!!
