Corner Building (Community Realty/WCOM)

On the agenda will be reports from the General Manager on Budgeting and Planning, Emergency Management Succession, and Treatment of Consumers.

Community Investment Initiative
Have you considered investing in Weaver Street Market?
The expansion of our Southern Village store is nearly complete, the new store and commissary in Hillsborough are on track to open soon, and we're beginning a suite of improvements to the Carrboro store. Weaver Street Market celebrates out 20th anniversary this month, and we're sure working hard to make the next 20 better every day, but to keep everything moving along we need several more community members to make 5-year loans of $10,000 or more.

We've nearly reached our member investment goal for this phase of the expansion project, but still need a few more members of the Co-op to make this additional investment; please contact us soon if you would like to receive more information about the Community Investment program, including the complete Offering Memorandum.

Why should you loan money to Weaver Street Market?
• Your investment stays with a local business you know and trust; where three times as much money filters back into the community as in a corporate-owned business.
• Your investment benefits your Co-op, and supports our initiatives that include paying a living wage, and our long-time support of local agriculture.
• Help us expand our Southern Village store, open a new store in Hillsborough, and improve our Carrboro store. More space! New products!
• We'll pay 6% simple interest annually, and repay the principal after 5 years.

Potluck in a Pasture
Features local food and arts June 29

Come celebrate summer, share home-grown food and meet local artists at the oldest certified organic farm in North Carolina on Sunday June 29 from 6 to 8 p.m. The first of ChathamArts' two "Potluck in a Pasture" suppers will be at Bill Dow's Ayrshire Farm in Hickory Mountain, located south of U.S. 64 midway between Pittsboro and Siler City.

Featured artists include bluegrass/swing musician and recording artist Susan Ketchin, singer/songwriter Sarah Shook, mural artist Erick Davis, woodwork artisan Dianne Swann and Rambler magazine publishers Dave Korzon and Elizabeth Oliver.

Dow, who has been on the forefront of organic farming and marketing of locally grown food for more than 20 years, will lead a tour of the scenic farm and the artists will demonstrate their work.

"The idea behind our potlucks is to honor our local farmers and artists, who are crucial to Chatham's rural economy and culture," said Daryl Walker, founder of the potluck project for ChathamArts, the nonprofit county arts council. "We hope these suppers will encourage more people to buy locally produced food and art. And what better way to spend a summer evening than sharing a home-grown meal with local artists and friends on a beautiful farm?"

Visitors are asked to bring a pot-luck dish for eight that includes at least one locally grown ingredient (and the recipe to share, noting the origin of local items), as well as a beverage, lawn chair or blanket, and a donation to ChathamArts, which supports local, diverse arts and cultural programs.

Local food ingredients for your pot-luck dish may come from your own garden or neighboring farms; from local farmers' markets at the Chatham County Fairgrounds or Southern Village (Thursdays), Fearrington Village (Tuesdays), or Siler City and Carrboro (Saturdays); or from Chatham Marketplace in Pittsboro, or Weaver Street in Southern Village and Carrboro.

Dow's organic vegetables, herbs, fruits and edible flowers embellish the menus of some of the best restaurants in the Triangle area. Ayrshire Farm is located on Friendly Pooch Lane off the Jay Shambley Road, south of U.S. 64. Directions are available on-line at or by calling 919.219.9840.

The second Potluck in a Pasture is set for Sunday Sept. 14, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Jordan Lake Farm near Martha's Chapel.

Uncommon Garden Tour
Expect the unexpected
June 14, 2008

The Uncommon Garden is a privately-owned garden designed by Rick Hermanson that has grown from creativity and imagination and blossoms through the hands of sculptors and artists. Unlike any place on earth, this sculptural landscape is truly inspiring with its rock assemblages, water features, detailed mosaic inlays, exquisite collection of Japanese Maples and surprises at every twist and turn of its winding path. This is a space that defies words and challenges traditional thought on the garden. To experience it fully, you must see it firsthand...and this is your only opportunity. The Uncommon Garden will be open for public tours for just one day. Timed tickets are limited. The Uncommon Garden is located off of Weaver Dairy Road in Chapel Hill. All proceeds benefit The ArtsCenter.
Pickards Mountain
Pickards Mountain Organic Farm in Western Orange County has recently been re-designed and dedicated solely to education. With wide grassy paths and lots of tasty organic fruits and vegetables, the entire 1.5 acre garden is now extremely child-friendly.

Elementary and Pre-School groups are invited to experience the farm during Strawberry Patch season! The Strawberry Patch Program will include visits to feed the baby goats and pigs, and also to the chicken coop to look for warm eggs! Children are invited to bring a picnic lunch to enjoy in the garden, and to take home a bucket of strawberries!

At Pickards Mountain, they believe in creating special experiences for children. Therefore, they only schedule one school group per day, and they keep their staff to student ratio below 1:10. They also work closely with teachers to align their program with their current curricula. For older children, they offer programs focusing on renewable energy - including visits to their wind and solar hybrid system and biodiesel refinery.

Charge per student is $10, with scholarship availability. Email them to create a tailored program for your class or group.

If you visited Panzanella during the past two months, you will certainly have noticed Carroll Lassiter's beautiful oil painting, "Parrish Field". The works selected for her solo exhibit include more glorious landscapes - immediately recognizable as Carroll's - and still life subjects, all handled with her characteristic fascination, meticulousness, and outstanding skill with oils.
