Member-Owner Job Openings

Honest Weight relies on our Member-Owners to help run our beautiful new store in a variety of ways. Here is a list of current needs, sorted by department.


These are one-time, task-specific projects.

**Earth Day Planting Project
Our Earth Day Celebration will take place on 4/25, and we'll be taking the first step toward our new landscaping project! Two members, Beth and Larry, will be taking a team of member workers through the first phase of planting a native, sustainable, perennial garden on our grounds. If you have a blast, this could also evolve into a season-long member job, taking care of the sustainable garden we'll be creating on our grounds. Contact for more details or to sign up.

**Strategic Planning Process
The Co-op's Strategic Planning Committee is in full swing, and we need some members to help with a few projects. We will be hosting three large-scale community meetings, and we need members to serve as Ambassadors at these events. Contact to help us in this crucial process.
