Join us for a celebration of our co-op community, the Annual Owner Meeting! Together we’ll go over the results of our latest fiscal year, hear about plans for the future, and enjoy some family-friendly fun on the farm. All Lakewinds owners and their households are invited.

Enjoy a light lunch from Common Roots, meet local cookbook author Beth Dooley for a cooking demonstration and book signing, dance to children’s rock band The Bazillions, and get to know some of the 2021 LOFF grant recipients before touring the educational barn and gardens at your own pace. Owners may attend the business meeting portion only, which begins promptly at 1:15 pm, without a ticket.

Lakewinds owners, we hope to see you on the farm this fall!
