Everyone is welcome. You don’t need to be a MAFCA member to attend.
Greenbelt, MD is a truly cooperative community! Join us and see the Greenbelt Food Co-op and enjoy lunch at the New Deal Co-op Cafe. Greenbelt was one of the nation’s first planned communities and once was home not only to a food co-op but also a cooperative gas station, barber shop, movie theater, beauty parlor, variety store and tobacco shop. (Here’s some interesting info from the city government:http://www.greenbeltmd.gov/DocumentCenter/View/558.)
Today the *Greenbelt Cooperative Alliance* includes the food co-op and the cafe, as well as a credit union, nursery school, newspaper and housing development. Our guest speaker will be the Chair of the Greenbelt Cooperative Alliance. Stay tuned for more details.
There is a DC Metro stop in Greenbelt, and lots of other public transportation options; here’s some info:
