Community Builders 

Community Builders is an intergenerational service program that provides opportunities for all members of our community to participate in projects designed to help our neighbors, protect the environment or address areas of need right here in our local area. Volunteer opportunities include: cooking community dinners, building natural play structures, harvesting garlic and more!

KIDS’ WORKSHOPS

These in-store workshops encourage kids to cook and engage in projects where they have the chance to do-it-themselves. Workshops take place in the Cafe, usually on Saturday mornings. They last about an hour and kids make everything from vegetable spring rolls and stir-fries to homemade lip balm and all-natural Easter egg dyes.

Adult Workshops

At the Berkshire Food Co-op, we're always learning, growing and evolving. With our in-store workshops, we hope to share that spirit with our community. With topics ranging from home canning, vertical farming and home heating efficiency to diy fermentation and how to use a pressure cooker, these workshops are meant to appeal to our diverse community and aim to raise awareness through education.
