BriarPatch Food Co-op Round-up at the Register program
The Co-op CAUSE program allows you to donate easily at checkout to a community endeavor aligned with the Co-op’s Ends Policies. Together we can raise a substantial amount for these causes by focusing attention on a given project for several weeks.
As you check out, just ask the cashier to round up your total payment to the nearest dollar or more. The amount over and above the purchase total — 100 percent of it — will be donated to the designated project.
SEPTEMBER CAUSE: 4 Elements Earth Education
4 Elements Earth Education was founded by Rick Berry to guide children, families and teens toward a pure connection to the Earth through direct experiences in nature. 4EEE provides programs that introduce Earth skills which are a blend of the ancient arts of tracking, wilderness survival, and nature awareness. Well-trained instructors and a robust curriculum give children, teens and adults first-hand experience of how to read the landscape as stewards of the Earth.
One of 4EEE’s core outdoor education programs, Young Fox Walkers (ages 4-6) and Fox Walkers (ages 7-17) are designed for children and teens who are home-schooled or attend public or charter schools. Fox Walkers exposes children to the stories and teachings of Grandfather Stalking Wolf, a Lipan Apache elder who wandered the western hemisphere for 60 years and handed down his teachings to the well-known author and teacher Tom Brown Jr. Fox Walkers subtly engages student in a spontaneous flow of interactive learning opportunities that empower, inspire, and prepare students to become active, responsible caretakers of the Earth.
