Who and What is the WLC?
The best of local - honey, meat, eggs, chickens, cheese, and more. The best of regional - berries, fruit, and even better. The best from all over - coconut oil, palm oil, laundry detergent, organic cotton and organic clothing, personal care items and beyond. The Whole Life Co-op is a group of people in Louisville, KY who are pursuing the following things...
1. Local, sustainable, ecologically sound farming, communities, and economies. We seek to find local farmers and encourage cottage industries to flourish here in Louisville, that we might build an economy where real people really care for their land and resources and provide real products at real prices (prices that reflect the true value and costs) to real people. To fulfill this goal, we have a buying club that offers the very best in local foods, including cheeses, eggs, beef, chicken, turkey, and more!
2. Simple living. Americans have accustomed themselves to a level and style of living that is not only unsustainable, but that is the height of selfishness and waste. We teach people why this is wrong, how it is robbing people around the world and here at home, including our children, and how to make changes. For more info, we encourage you to check out "The Story of Stuff" before joining.
To fulfill this goal, we educate and equip our families to do things like make their own cleaners, toothpaste, etc... and how to generally live with and on less.
3. Nutrient dense foods and prepared parenting. Traditional cultures produced generation after generation of vibrant parents and beautiful, strong, healthy babies... needless to say, that is no longer true here in America and many other parts of the world as the displacing foods of modern commerce - refined grains and sugars, canned foods, and vegetable oils, among others - have overtaken our grocery stores. We help equip people and point them back down the path to radiant health for them and their families.
4. More to come!
