From the GM—February 2020

Happy February! The days are getting longer and brighter which means, soon, we will start seeing local greens and start reconnecting with many of our local farmers. 

Over the past couple of months, members of the board and I have been working hard! We’ve been busy building a robust health and safety policy, starting new committees (TBA!), reinvigorating old ones, and starting to think about Karma’s future. If you would like to be part of the magic that is moving Karma forward, please get in touch with either myself ( or the board (

I’ve been working with one of Karma’s members on updating Karma’s website. This much needed change will make our site more current and user friendly, as well as better feature our amazing content. And yes, the site will be mobile friendly. ???????????? Thank you to Neil Joyes for working long and hard on this project, which we hope to launch by the end of February. The update is long overdue. I hope you love the changes!

Many of you have been asking about when, and if, Karma will be getting tap on our debit terminals. I’m happy to announce that yes, we will. Very soon! Getting tap will make cashing out a little bit faster. You’re welcome!

You may have noticed a new face at Karma. Kevin Bowman is our newest addition to the Karma team. Kevin has a strong co-op background (currently sitting on the Guelph Campus Co-op board, as well as having established a co-operative board game cafe in Guelph), and he has experience with local and organic foods. Welcome Kevin!

In co-operation,

Talia McGuire
General Manager
