PEDAL PEOPLE NEWS SEPTEMBER 2014

Greetings from the Pedal People Press:
... a simple, informative newsletter to support our collective path to
sustainability ...

Contents:
* Expanded Educational Offerings
* Enterprise Farm Shares
* Revised Mission Statement
* Change to Pedal People emails
* Trash Tip


** EXPANDED EDUCATIONAL OFFERINGS **

Our collective has long offered presentations and educational
programs, mostly by request and word of mouth. In the past month we
have presented at UMass,  International Language Institute, and Mass
MOCA.  With our commitment to sustainability and community, we see it
as an important expansion of our collective to more actively offer our
engaging educational programs.  If your school, business, or community
program is interested, please contact our education coordinator, Ellen
Clegg at eclegg@pedalpeople.coop


** ENTERPRISE FARM SHARES **

We have been collaborating with Enterprise Farm to provide home
delivered CSA shares right to your doorstep in Northampton!  Winter
shares are also available! If you are interested in this service,
visit our Enterprise Farm page:

** REVISED MISSION STATEMENT **

Our collective revised our Mission Statement this summer to best
articulate our current purpose and direction: the pulse carrying us on
our path to sustainability. After much hard work, here it is! 

"The Pedal People Cooperative uses bicycles and bicycle trailers to
transport goods and provide services. We strive to model the use of
human power as a viable alternative to fossil fuels. Recognizing that
environmental sustainability is not possible without social equity, we
work to challenge systems of oppression and unequal power, both within
our collective and in the larger world. We aim for a work-life balance
that enables us to pursue our interests and participate in our
communities. Pedal People is committed to worker-ownership, and we
share inspiration and education with others working to create a more
just society."


** CHANGE TO PEDAL PEOPLE E-MAILS **

Please update your address books. We have changed our e-mails from
@pedalpeople.com to @pedalpeople.coop.


** TRASH TIP **

Although maggot season has almost passed, we received a note of
success from one of our customers!  She started putting 1 small
camphor ball in the bottom of her barrel every week and it's totally
spotless.  If you have any helpful tips to share, please email them to
eclegg@pedalpeople.coop.
