It all started on 2nd July, 2007.
Several weeks before, Diana said she wanted to get a few boxes of fruit and vegetables to sell to the tourists. After a few weeks of listening to her plan brewing, Terry and I decided to join in and activate the idea. We pooled our $150's, ordered the minimum order of $300, arranged delivery and set up outside of the Three Sisters' of Clallam Gallery, the green building in Clallam Bay.
The summer was cold. The wood stove burned all day most days. We put on our jackets to go out and serve by the road; we sold enough to renew our order every three weeks. It was a testing job, six days a week, but one that captured my imagination. I found myself saying we will be growing into a Co-op. At this point I had no idea and had not heard that any research had been done on this by anyone.
