From the GM – July 2019

posted on Monday, July 1st, 2019

Dear Karma Members, And just like that, it’s summer! Personally, I love the heat, and the local veggies and fruit are loving it too! The strawberries, green onions, lettuce, and garlic scapes are in and we’re waiting on more new arrivals every day. We also have some great specials to kick of the beginning of […]

Getting to the Root of Hydroponic Farming: Vegetables Grown in Water?

posted on Friday, May 31st, 2019

Ever heard of growing food without soil? That’s hydroponics: a method of growing crops entirely in water, without the use of soil. It’s a closed system where all environmental elements are fully controlled to produce an optimal growing environment. Roots are fed nutrient-rich water in an indoor space such as a greenhouse or even a […]

Ask Reece

posted on Thursday, May 23rd, 2019

Dear Reece, Apparently, a lot of olive oil is adulterated. This is extremely alarming. Could you tell me if the bulk oil at Karma is guaranteed to be what it says it is? In this vein, I have regular lunches with a friend, where we take turns hosting. He prepares lovely meals, but often with […]

From the GM—May 2019

Intro to fermentation: How to make your own sauerkraut

posted on Monday, May 6th, 2019

In the six years I have been facilitating sauerkraut workshops, there has been a common thread among attendees: most arrive not knowing what to expect, and with a bit of fear about what will come of this experiment. Much of that fear, I believe, has to do with the reputation that accompanies all things fermentation. […]

Bulk dental floss at Karma

posted on Monday, May 6th, 2019

Unlike rows of new bulk bins, or the recently installed kombucha bar, there are many other new arrivals at Karma that can easily escape our notice. One such product is silk dental floss. A brief mention of it in the Karma e-Chronicle a few months back caught my attention. Shortly thereafter, I bought a Flosspot and […]

Karma bulking up on everything from kombucha to quinoa

posted on Wednesday, April 3rd, 2019

Quick quiz: how many flavours of kombucha does Karma offer in bulk? “What, Karma has started selling bulk kombucha?!” many of you may ask, quizzically. Yes! Since the end of February, the very popular beverage has started flowing through taps installed in the side of one of the stand-up fridges into customers’ waiting jars. And it’s […]

Strategy and Planning Committee

posted on Saturday, March 30th, 2019

This committee first came together as part of a Strategic Planning initiative. The work began over the summer of 2018 with analysis of a series of surveys and food industry reports. It is possible that since Karma’s Mission and Core Values are well established, a formal Strategic Plan process may not be necessary. This committee […]
