The Rooted Carrot Co-op Needs You! 

We may not be having in-person events right now, but there is still much to do to make the store a reality. Just a few hours a week can make a huge impact on our goal. Visit our volunteer page to see some specific opportunities that might interest you.

That’s okay, too!  Fill out the volunteer form and we’ll work with you to figure out where you would have the most fun and feel like you are making the biggest impact. Our volunteer drive continues through December – make friends, make a difference, and make this store happen!  Let’s grow the co-op together – volunteer today!
