Welcome Cobi, Manager, Maple St Co-op


The Board is pleased to advise that, following a review of the structure, organisation and procedures of the Co-op, it has appointed Yacoba (Cobi) Verstraten as Manager of the Maple St Co-op. Cobi has been employed by the Co-op for 12 years. Starting as our cleaner, Cobi has proven her commitment to Co-operative principals, demonstrated a strong work ethic and capability. This led to her appointment as Store Manager 4 years ago.

The Management of the Co-op has been undertaken in the past by Alan Harrington and more recently Karen Syrmis. Under Karen’s stewardship many vital changes were made to the operations of the business. These very positive changes have led to the current state where an overseeing role is no longer required and we again thank Karen for her valued assistance to the Co-op.

On behalf of the Board and all members, I wish Cobi every success in her new role and we look forward to working with her into the future.

Chairman of the Board

The Consignors' Club

Would you like to join a loose group of people growing specialist produce for the Co-op?

The idea is that new (and old!) consignors work together to supply heirloom vegetables, give each other support and advice and, most importantly, schedule what's being grown to avoid a 'glut and drought' situation.

Heirloom vegetables are sought after - and this is where we will start.

There is also a demand for Rosellas and we might look at these as well.

Our meetings and advice could all be done on-line - which is not to say we won't meet for a coffee now and then. If you're interested contact me....sammy - at - ausbushfoods.com


The Children's Garden Grows

Dwarf fruit trees donated


Garden

The Sunshine Coast Regional Council have been very supportive of the Children’s Community Garden behind the Co-op,  donating mulch, signage and seedlings to the endeavour. Last week, Bruce Smith (Council’s Parks Community Partnership  Officer) put a smile on everyone’s face when he turned up with two trays of dwarf fruit trees.

 Kate Kazony, one of the driving forces behind the garden, was delighted.
