Being Part of a Co-Op Means... Supporting Local Produce!
This week's Co-Operative Coffee Break fix is a clip from our member's video series "Being Part of a Co-Op Means..." and features Áine & Lorraine, both co-op members here at The Urban Co-Op in Limerick.
Our Co-Operative means many things to many people and for both Lorraine and Áine being part of the co-op is about supporting local businesses and local produce. It's also important for them to know where their food comes from.
