Hi Robert, 
The co-op organizing event in May looked very interesting, but travel from Virginia was impossible at the time. Will the event be reepeated, and in the meantime, are there any video/dvd or audio tapes of the proceedings available for rent or sale? A few permies in Charlottesville are hoping to start a food co-op; in Virginia a lot of the original food co-ops founded in the 70s (Richmond's, Norfolk's, Charlottesville/Crozet's) ended  after 25-30 year runs in the early 2000s. But these days, interest is on the rise again- enthusiasm of local foods and not as much bought-in from bulk suppliers further afield is fueling this interest, and any info and resources you care to share are greatly appreciated. 
Many Thanks,
Michelle in VA
