Now Accepting Green Patch Nominations

Green Patch

We are currently accepting nominations for our 2015 Green Patch organizations. All you need to do to nominate your favorite environmental organization is fill out the Green Patch application and drop it our at the customer service desk. The 2015 Green Patch organizations will be chosen by member vote at our Annual Meeting, in October.

The Green Patch program encourages shoppers to reduce waste and reuse canvas, cloth, or other durable shopping bags—and supports two “green groups” chosen by member vote each year.

The local foods movement has taken root nationwide. Where other trends have come and gone, the local foods movement is stronger than ever, fueled by a growing desire for transparency in food production practices, knowing where our food dollars are going, and the sheer delight of eating a freshly-picked tomato.

At Linden Hills we are featuring all of our favorite local vendors all month long.
