A bright light in an otherwise dim economy, GreenStar's Oasis continues to perform beyond expectations. Oasis Manager Cilla Cartland cites physical improvements, thoughtful product offerings and, most importantly, great customer service as the reasons why.
GreenStar members voted by a 3-to-1 margin in early 2004 to buy the foundering privately-owned Oasis Natural Foods store located in downtown Ithaca's Dewitt Mall, and GreenStar opened the store as GreenStar Oasis in May 2004. Seven years later, the store is thriving, though there have been some tough times along the way.
GreenStar at DeWitt Mall (Oasis) is a cozy downtown natural foods market nestled in the historic Dewitt Mall, just blocks from Ithaca’s renowned Commons. Whether you’re looking for a hot meal, a few vitamins, your week’s groceries or just a cup of tea, Oasis has got the goods.

|The Four Causes of Happiness|
By Venerable Khenchen Palden Sherab Rinpoche
All living beings have the same general wish: we all want to be happy and free from suffering. Everyone shares this common wish. It doesn't matter which country we're from, what tradition we follow, our background, or our beliefs — our goal is the same.
We should embrace this deep, common ground we share, and try to respect, appreciate, and have patience with one another. We're here to learn from one another, to support one another, and to grow together. Everyone is important and special.
Since we all like happiness and peace, we shouldn't ignore their causes. We can't really expect results to appear without their causes. There is nothing we know of where results have arisen without their necessary causes and conditions. So, as much as we love the results, we should also love the causes and conditions behind them. As much as we want to be happy, we have to love the causes for happiness as well.
