Nearly 500 attend BriarPatch owner meeting

Celebrating the International Year of the Cooperative, BriarPatch Co-op’s annual owner meeting drew almost 500 attendees.

The October event was celebrated with food and presentations, including guest speaker David Thompson, Cooperative Hall of Fame honoree. The evening ended with the music of the Jamal Walker Band.

BriarPatch owners should save the date for next year’s meeting, “A Cajun Carnival.” On Oct. 10, 2013, Cajun cuisine will be served and zydeco music by The Bayou Boys will keep toes tapping.

Founded in 1976, BriarPatch Co-op is Nevada County’s leading natural-food grocer and the county’s first LEED-certified commercial green building. A cooperative business, BriarPatch has 6,000 owners and is open to the public. BriarPatch Co-op is located at 290 Sierra College Drive in Grass Valley.
