12th Moon, Council President

2011 promises to be a year of transformations for GreenStar. It is also a year to celebrate our growth and accomplishments 40 years after the 1971 founding of the Ithaca Real Foods Co-op, a group buying co-op. The business eventually became GreenStar Cooperative Market, and was incorporated on Winter Solstice, Dec. 22, 1982. Now, 28 years later, we are a two-store organization, operating a warehouse, with combined sales of $15 million, serving a membership of over 7,500! Happy Birthday, GreenStar, and we look forward to another 28 years of service to our member-owners, our community and as an example of the cooperative, democratic business model.

How is that possible? It seems that every once in a while, life presents a solution to a long-standing problem that ends up creating benefits far beyond what we originally envisioned. Such is the case with the dilemma of GreenStar’s overabundance of Ithaca HOURS, Ithaca’s own local currency.
