The Maple Street Co-op is a health food shop supplying local, organic, wholesome and ethical products while providing support and education to our members and the community.
We aim to promote healthy lifestyles by providing high-quality foods and products, created according to the principles of organic production, social ethics and environmental sensitivity, and making them available at a reasonable price to Co-op members and the community.
The Maple Street Co-op benefits the Maleny region as an employer, as a provider of locally produced fruit, vegetables and other products and services, and as a promoter of cooperative principles.
An evening with GM activist Fran Murrell.
What is genetically modified food, why is it controversial and how do I know if I’m eating it?
Fran Murrell first learned about GM crops and food 17 years ago. She was initially supportive but the more she learned the more concerned she became.
Six years ago she co-founded MADGE (Mothers are Demystifying Genetic Engineering) to let people know what is going on.
The UpFront Club is delighted to be hosting a talk by Fran. Her talk will be followed by a Q & A session so you can really understand this important subject. She will be in Maleny for a short time only so be sure you don’t miss her:
When? Wednesday, September 10th, 7-8pm
Where? The UpFront Club, 31 Maple St Maleny.
Places are limited so please book on 5494 2592. Gold Coin Donation
A tale of two co-ops:
The Consignors' Club
Would you like to join a loose group of people growing specialist produce for the Co-op?
The idea is that new (and old!) consignors work together to supply heirloom vegetables, give each other support and advice and, most importantly, schedule what's being grown to avoid a 'glut and drought' situation.
Heirloom vegetables are sought after - and this is where we will start.
There is also a demand for Rosellas and we might look at these as well.
Our meetings and advice could all be done on-line - which is not to say we won't meet for a coffee now and then. If you're interested contact me....sammy - at - ausbushfoods.com
The Children's Garden Grows
Dwarf fruit trees donated
The Sunshine Coast Regional Council have been very supportive of the Children’s Community Garden behind the Co-op, donating mulch, signage and seedlings to the endeavour. Last week, Bruce Smith (Council’s Parks Community Partnership Officer) put a smile on everyone’s face when he turned up with two trays of dwarf fruit trees.
Kate Kazony, one of the driving forces behind the garden, was delighted.
