At the GEM, we believe that movement and change starts at home and in the community. That’s why we envision bridging our community with other social movements and progressive outlets through community events and organization. We strive to empower others to come together and work as a team for common goals and aspirations that awaken the human spirit, create awareness of sustainable living practices, and support our local economy.
We support small artisans overseas, in our home town ,and surrounding areas through fair trade agreements. We offer their goods at our store as a cooperative movement. In a world of competition and greed, we support the new model of business by creating jobs and economic outlets for the entire community, through art, music, dance, activism, farming, festivals, and markets.
