October is Co-op Month! To celebrate, we want to honor the members of all cooperatives. On Tuesday, October 20th, let's get together and enjoy the thing we all love. Members of any co-op will receive $2.00 off house beer all day. Please bring in your cooperative identification--electric bill, ownership card, pay stub, credit union debit card, or any other proof that you are a business owner. We'll have a couple local organizations represented at this happy hour as well.
The Austin Cooperative Business Association (ACBA) is the nation’s first local business league dedicated to promoting cross-sector collaboration among cooperatively formed businesses. ACBA is proud to partner with Black Star in promoting and educating the greater Austin community about the cooperative business model and launching the “Commit to Co-ops” campaign this month. The Board of Directors will be in house and look forward to sharing ACBA's story and meeting fellow committed co-opers.
Yard to Market Co-op empowers home gardeners by creating opportunities to sell yard-grown food. Folks from Yard to Market Co-op will be here with tales of success from their gardening adventures and fun raffle prizes for your home and garden.
Happy Co-op Month! We hope to see all cooperative members at Black Star this month.
