Tidal Creek Co-op / UNCW Driveway is Open
We are so excited about our new driveway, connecting the (old Cinema 6) UNCW commuter parking lot with the Tidal Creek Co-op complex parking lot! This connection allows for 50 additional parking spaces, and eliminates the need for parking passes when parking in any of the freshly painted teal parking spaces. Craig Harris, Tidal Creek General Manager states, “Tidal Creek Cooperative Food Market and UNCW have forged a partnership to build a driveway joining our parking lots, bringing greater connectivity for community members entering and exiting from Oleander Drive, and reducing the potential for accidents. The Co-op has over 3000 owners who have been seeking an improvement, and this solution was created by two long-standing, local organizations, working together to help each other.” Please enjoy the convenience of this connecting driveway and additional parking, and keep it real… park in the teal!
Piedmont Biofuels Wilmington Pump Station is Open
Wilmington’s only biofuels pump is now open at Tidal Creek Co-op! Piedmont Biofuels, a cooperative out of Pittsboro NC, is supplying the tank with locally procured and produced product. The pump is located behind the Co-op, and is contained in a shed built by Old School Rebuilders with primarily reclaimed materials from the New Hanover County landfill. You wouldn’t know it from looking, as Dogwood Design Studio really outdid themselves on a beautiful and energy efficient architectural design. Please read more about the building project and contributors at tidalcreek.coop, and visit biofuels.coop for everything you need to know about Piedmont Biofuels ownership, pricing, production, and services offered. While Tidal Creek Co-op is proud to host this exciting new service to the SENC region, Piedmont Biofuels ownership is required for fueling and is separate of Tidal Creek Co-op ownership.
Tidal Creek Co-op Twin Pines Community Fund
Tidal Creek Co-op owners contributed almost $1400 to the Twin Pines Community Fund through donation of their 2011 Patronage Dividend Refunds! The Community Fund was established in 2007 as a permanent fund whose interest is given annually to local non-profit groups working on issues relating to sustainable agriculture and organic food, hunger and malnutrition, environmental protection, and cooperatives. Nourish NC, recipient of Tidal Creek funding in 2011, is a grassroots organization dedicated to feeding underserved children in our community who suffer from food insecurity. Applications for 2012 funding will be available at Tidal Creek’s Customer Service Desk, and will be accepted from qualifying community organizations through July 31st, 2012.
The Application can also be downloaded below and returned to the store before July 31, 2012.
