Frugal Friday - co-operatives

I used to be in an awesome co-op in Melbourne and lamented the loss of that when I moved.  But I recently discovered that a few of the home ed families here run one and I collected my first order today.
A co-op is a great way to buy bulk, often organic/bio dynamic produce and a discounted price.  It isn't quite wholesale but still a lot cheaper than the stores.  It also reduces food miles and packaging.

It is also a great way to get to know like minded families and enlarge your community.

Here are a few links with info on co-ops and their locations:
