Shaye and Lee Hardisty
"After a visit to Maleny a few years earlier to see a friend, we felt so welcomed by the people involved with the Upfront Club that we raced to the Blackall Range as
soon as our work was finished in China. Organics are very important to us and most of the income made by our family is spent on food. We shop at the Co-op almost as an act of rebellion. It's about putting our money in the hands of people doing good things for the world, like growing local organic food or making products that at least are in line with our ethics. Keeping that in mind our favourite part of the ‘Co-op’ is the staff...like Mita with her awesome jumper collection or just people we meet in the aisles for a chat.
