The tour, one of the co-op’s most successful fundraisers each year, includes 10 to 15 houses or gardens for a whole bunch of curious, well-meaning neighbors to see. This year’s event will span several neighborhoods — parts of Bella Vista, Queen Village, Pennsport, Dicksinson Square West — from Fitzwater to Moore streets, 2nd to 10th streets.

On a side note, you’re probably wondering about when this store will become less theoretical. We hear that the real estate committee gave a presentation about the requirements for a retail space to a membership meeting in the spring and that they’ve been looking at lots of spaces. The co-op was also waiting to reach the threshhold of 600 members to sign a lease, and they reached that goal in May.
So, really, any day now…
