A “Counter Culture” Through Partnership
As one more example of the good things that can happen through unique partnerships, Food Front Coop grocery is pleased to have a new and beautiful front counter in their NW Portland store. The project’s success owes thanks to the cooperative efforts of a consumer (Food Front), an artistic craftsman (James Thompson of Jetwoodshop) and, you guessed it, a nearby forest and sawmill (Hyla Woods). Diners now have a comfortable spot to eat their meal and beside the counter is a poster that creatively tells the story of the counter. Special thanks to all, but particularly to the leaders at Food Front for looking for and taking advantage of ways to use their power as consumers to make a positive difference in the nearby, rural landscape. What’s next?!
