Thank you for attending the “How to Start a Produce Co-Op” event this past Saturday at Athlete’s Arena Irmo. We hope that you found it informative and worthwhile. It was so nice to see new faces step inside our gym and hear from members of our community on how save money and feed your family fresh fruits and veggies, and the importance of supporting local business and South Carolina farmers.
