by Blog

Carbon Co-op are delighted to have been invited to present at Unicorn Grocery‘s ‘Meet the Co-ops’ event on Monday 24th September, 7.00 – 9.30pm at their shop in Chorlton.

Wholefood co-operative Unicorn are marking the UN’s International Year of the Co-op with a chance to meet organisations providing food, drink & energy, the co-operative way. The evening is a chance to hear how the co-op movement began right here in the North of England, and how the Rochdale Pioneers’ aims to provide a fair, honest supply of resources live on in modern day co-operatives, here and across the world.

The evening features short talks and films from a range of other co-operatives including Rochdale Pioneers Museum, Manchester Veg People, the Handmade Bakery, Greater Manchester Tree Station, FC United, the Co-operative College and the Oromo Coffee Company.

Plus there will be time to chat over some Unicorn soup and bread, and an ale or two. £3 tickets (in advance only) available from the shop now. For more information email debbie@unicorn-grocery.co.uk
