Hey friends! Alleah here to give you all the shop updates! ;) How exciting! We’re so close! Things are really happening!
Construction is speeding up around here and each visit to the shop brings new changes and excitement. The outside of the building has been painted! And we have heat! The Greenhouse is enclosed and drywall is going up. Our outdoor stage has been poured, and so have the sidewalks and porch. The big question on everyone’s mind is, “When will the shop be open?” Well folks, it’s looking like February now. We are hoping to be open from 6am-7 or 8pm, Monday through Friday and most likely staying open later on the weekends.
Our team is learning a lot about delays and patience. We have learned that it’s okay for things to go slow because that means they are done right. We are happy to have a little breathing room to make sure we can perfect things on our end. We have also had the opportunity to chat with the community and get to know their wants and needs. We love hearing from you!
The Greenhouse is up! Lots of folks are wondering what The Greenhouse will be used for. We are excited to share that it will be used as a community space. Think of this place as an all-purpose space for events, workshops, classes, poetry readings, music and more. The greenhouse will also host our coffee roasting facility. Our coffee partners, Gooseneck Coffee Co , will roast all their tasty beans there. We can’t wait for you to get to know them!
We are in need of some community donations of sound equipment, instruments, a projector and screens as well as chairs. If you know anyone around with some spare stuff, help a local coffee shop out! ;)
What’s next for Drifter?
We are excited to keep working as hard as we can to get the shop ready to open! In the next 2 two months we will be working on the process of workflow, training and hiring. We will also be planning the final touches of the shop such as the menu design. We will start planning events for the greenhouse as well as community events for our outdoor summer stage. There won’t be a dull moment, and we are going to work our asses off. Send good vibes!
Thanks for your support,
