I am former teacher and social worker originally from Syracuse, NY. I am currently homeschooling our five kids on a small homestead outside of Albany. I have been a member of HWFC for almost 10 years and feel very committed to supporting member-owned cooperatives. For this reason I choose to do almost all of the shopping for a family of 7 at the Co-op, even if I could occasionally save a buck elsewhere. So very grateful for HWFC and its continual and evolving work to give every member a voice!
