Gentle Strength Cooperative

Gentle Strength provides healthy food, education opportunities, and a health cafe to the Tempe area. Membership guidelines appear a little confused, from their website – but it appears that membership costs $25/year up to a total equity of $200. This member-owner arrangement entitles the member to patronage refunds and a vote in the coop. A second card can be acquired for $10. (A flat fee.)

It appears that they had a member-labor program which has ceased as of September 1, 2005. However, it also appears that the core benefit of this program, a 10% discount, has been moved to the member-owner category. In general, it is clear that the co-op is undergoing a substantial restructuring, and the updating of the website is not 100% up to date!
