Tip for making #organic food more afforable # 4: JOIN JOIN JOIN! Join food co-ops, buyers’ clubs and loyalty programs. Many buyers clubs ship organic food wholesale to doorsteps – and many organic food producers and retailers’ websites and social outlets feature frequent coupons, offers and other incentives. Also, joining organic farm CSAs not only saves you money, but directly supports your local economy. Are you a member at a food co-op? Pitch in some volunteer member hours and you'll often receive discounts.
