When your neighborhood doesn't provide the products and services you desire, you can get in your car and drive somewhere else, or you can do something to permanently bring what you need to your neighborhood. A group of northeast Denver residents living in and around Stapleton, Park Hill, East Colfax, Lowry, Montclair and North Aurora are doing just that. Frustrated by a lack of grocery outlets dedicated to local, natural and organic meats, dairy and produce, they formed the Northeast Community Co-op with the goal of opening a market in the area. Currently at 300 members, the co-op hopes to recruit an additional 600 members by the end of the year and another 600 by the time the market opens, sometime next year.
