Meet Barb. Barb takes special orders and makes some product-specific purchasing at the Co-op. She also represents the Co-op at the CHFA (Canadian Health Food Association), an annual conference/trade-show held in Vancouver. For the past 3 years Barb has attended the CHFA, networking and finding new products to bring in to the Co-op.
A former professional cook, avid food lover with a passion for natural organic food, Barb happily joined the Co-op when it was starting out five years ago. Calling Cherryville home, Barb loves that she can buy local food in Lumby:
In her spare time, Barb enjoys making greeting cards (using her own illustrations and photos) which you can find at the Co-op! She loves walking down to the river and balancing stacks of rocks, and has a passion for film, boasting an impressive movie collection!
If Barb could visit one of our local suppliers, it would be Sweet Haven Farms, a company located in Cherryville that grow their own microgreens. She finds the process fascinating and would like to see it done from start to finish.
Barb has such a wonderful spirit and we’re so grateful to have her help at the Co-op. Thanks for all that you do, Barb! ♥
