Mission:

Weavers Way Cooperative Association is a member-owned, cooperative grocery store with locations in West Mt. Airy and Chestnut Hill. The association’s mission is to operate a grocery-based consumer organization that is owned and governed by its members, and to build community, both within its membership and in the Northwest Philadelphia area. The initiative to enrich communities through locally based, sustainable practices is extended beyond co-op members and shoppers through Weavers Way Farms and Weavers Way Community Programs.

Services/Programs Offered:

Weavers Way stores sell products that are local, sustainably made, organic, and fairly traded. In addition, the association manages  farms at Awbury Arboretum and Walter Biddle Saul High School of Agricultural Sciences that produce food shared through community supported agriculture (CSA) programs  and sold in Weavers Way stores.  Through the Weavers Way Community Programs nonprofit, farm education is offered to a diverse array of learners including residents of the Stenton Family Manor emergency shelter for homeless families. Learn more at  http://www.weaversway.coop/pages/our-nonprofit.

Student Opportunities:

By joining the cooperative as a member, students can get involved with all aspects of the association’s operations. Members are encouraged to attend board meetings and to work at the stores, on the farms, and with the community programs to earn a retail discount while promoting sustainability in the greater Philadelphia region.  For more information on memberships, visit http://www.weaversway.coop/pages/membership.
