It's been a couple of months since we first told you about
the Manitou Springs community push for the creation of Local First Grocer
, designed as a sustainable food co-op for a town lacking a food market for its citizens.
In early January, organizers launched a humble Kickstarter campaign
seeking funds to get going. As of a couple of weeks ago
, it was already pulling in some good donations towards its $17,000 goal.
And today, as of this writing, the group needs less than $1,000 to make its dream a reality, with six days to go in the fundraising campaign.
So if you're new to the venture, and haven't yet looked into what it's all about, watch the group's short video pitch here and consider helping out with a contribution.
