As a cooperative grocery, Ever’man has a long history of offering our community education about health, nutrition and environmental issues. We educate by reporting about food and environmental hot topics in this bi-monthly publication, The Healthy Alternative; by teaching cooking skills in our Educational Center classes; by informing shoppers and vendors about our product standards; through our teaching garden where we educate about companion planting and heirloom varieties of flowers and vegetables and by having our knowledgeable staff ready to serve members and customers.
Ever’man Cooperative is dedicated to adding value to membership and supporting the community by offering classes at our Educational Center, a 1,900 square foot facility equipped with a commercial teaching kitchen, which comfortably accommodates 42 attendees. Our cooking class attendance continues to grow each month, with special interest in healthy cooking classes and cooking classes about specific diets. We continue to add new cooking classes that highlight healthy meal options such as sushi making, tamale making, kombucha making and Indian Vegetarian Cooking. With member and community support, our monthly class calendar of 70+ classes with a dynamic range of classes from yoga and an introduction to nutrition and wellness, to more in depth classes like visualization for stress relief and aromatherapy continues to remain full and well attended.
