Community Outreach

Outreach is a vital part of telling the co-op story. Rising Tide supports this effort by bringing accessible mission driven education to our community. In alignment with the fifth co-op principle; education, training and information. We are proud to work with local educators to offer a variety of workshops, classes, monthly community talks and co-op store tours. During the months of January and May 2019 we hosted 84 classes, workshops, talks and events.

Check out the list of classes and events on our Calendar Page!

Donations and sponsorships are an important way in which we engage our community as well. During 2018 Rising Tide donated $32,357 in cash, goods and gift cards. The co-op also proudly sponsors many local organizations. Our outreach goals for the future are to continue education efforts that tell our story, engage the community on in alliance with our mission statement and encourage new membership.

Join us for First Monday Gardening
at Rising Tide!

Each first Monday morning of the month, from 7:30-8:30, we welcome volunteers to help clean up and maintain our beautiful gardens. As a thanks for those efforts, volunteers will get breakfast, on us! In the case of inclement weather, we will gather the next day, the first Tuesday of the month, at the same time.
