A co-op owner profile of Heather Fast, owner of Stamen & Pistil, owner 132

Why did you join the co-op? I want to shop local every day of the week with ease, and support our local growers. This has been a dream of mine for years. Healthy local food is the key to a healthy and long life, in my opinion.

What is something that you love about Silverton? I adore that our town is full of of people that truly care about our community. Be it farmer or suburbanite, they all care about this place that I like to call Whoville and home.

What is your favorite vegetable?  I don’t know that I can pick one vegetable to love on more than another, but I’m very fond of carrots, snow peas, and fresh cucumbers.
