Monday, April 19 from 5-6pm

Jamila Medley, PACA's beloved executive director, is leaving her role at the end of May. In this time, PACA's staff and board are practicing a model of leadership and governance aligned to our cooperative values. Join us for a conversation about what we've learned over the years, where we are, and where we're going — and, of course, to celebrate Jamila!

Earth Day Webinar: The Power of Cooperative Sustainability (click to register)
Thursday, April 22 at 6pm

You buy local and organic food from your local food co-op whenever you can, to help create a robust local economy, grow a healthier environment, and support sustainability. You want to go further to grow the local green economy, and you know there’s one small step you can take for an even bigger impact: choosing a renewable electricity supplier. But how do you know your electricity provider is sustainable? How do you choose an electricity supplier that matches your values? Join PACA members The Energy Co-op, Weavers Way Co-op, and Mariposa Food Co-op for a special presentation to learn:

  • How co-ops impact our local communities
  • What to look for in a sustainable electricity supplier
  • Insider tips about the energy industry & renewable energy
