12/21 Cherry Valley Share Distr. at Highland Springs Resort/Grand Oak Steakhouse

Would you like to buy super fresh, organic produce at wholesale prices? The IEOPBC is a community of people who get together and pool our money to make group purchases of organic produce in bulk to save money. We also support local organic farms by buying as much produce as possible from our network of local organic farmers.

Each participant prepays $28.00 per share. SHARES MUST BE PAID IN ADVANCE. The organizer team uses the money to buy wholesale organic produce by the case, and divides it equally amongst the participants for distribution the following Meetup. Please read our "Pages" for a description of the group and rules.

Payment deadline is Tuesday at 11:59 pm prior to following Meet-up.

Payment instructions follow these important messages:

1. When making a payment you CAN change the payment amount in the box to match the payment amount you need to make.

2. New members must pay the membership fee when paying for their first share.

Instructions for RSVPing when paying through PayPal:

    Greetings to all. Lee and I are preparing an article on IEOP focusing on Saturday Dec.21st to post on the Patch and other news outlets in the area. People need to hear of this. I have a number of pictures, but would appreciate any comments you might have, especially about the significance of IEOP and what I'd call a compassionate life style. You can post it here, or e-mail it to me at <[masked]>.

    I am moving to Rancho Mirage in January and a raw vegan. Are there others who drive out to pick up food in Cherry Valley? If not, is there interest in either car pooling or taking turns picking up orders? Or, is there a buying club in the Palm Springs area?

      Lets try this again.. Check for a similar group in your new area. It's a long shot but worth the try. Here are some websites you can search for local grown and organic produce: http://www.localharve...­

      Hi Mark, I'd like to add that we have been approached by several people who would like us to start a pick up location in the Palm Springs area, so although we don't have one now, it's a possibility, if we could find the right location. Also, we have had groups successfully take turns picking up for each other, so if you can put it together, I know it can be done. : ),
