Brattleboro Food Coop & Windham Housing Trust Join Forces
The Brattleboro Food Co-op and the Windham Housing Trust are working together to create a larger space for the growing co-op and new affordable housing downtown. Plans show a new, four-floor building in which the first two levels will be occupied by the co-op and the top two levels will be rental units operated by the Housing Trust. This development plan was given $875,000 in state and federal money this month. The co-op is one of Brattleboro’s leading businesses despite the economic slump, and regionally, all food co-ops seem to be doing well. For more on this story, Read or Listen at VPR’s website.
