Obživa is operated by an organisation called Spolek živá obŽIVA (LIVElihood association) which is at the moment accepting new members who want to be part of this collaborative cooperative shop. Our values are simple: organic agriculture, food less traveled, less packaging, solidarity, transparency and collaboration – to make it short; care for the Earth and each other.
How to become a member?
Anyone over 18 years old can become a member. You can join either as an individual, as a family, or as an organisation. The association is formed by consumers, farmers, producers and various groups. First, you need to register here (available only in czech). Then you will be asked to contribute with a minimum of 4800Kč (maximum 48000Kč) to our transparent bank account using your variable symbol you find in the confirmation email. All donations over the minimal amount are welcome. If you’d like to invest to the solidary fund and give a chance to join to a person who cannot afford this initial contribution, you can transfer double amount and put ‘solidary fund’ in the notes.
What are the benefits for members?
Members become owners of the shop which means that they can directly influence the form of the shop, its range of offer and be part of the other important decisions. The practical reason is an access to the better food and products for better prices. All of this within a community of people you’ll get to know and who share the same values about the way how to grow and get our food.
How does it work?
After you become a member and start contributing monthly, you’ll be able to benefit from getting food from Obživa for better value, better quality and also partly from people, you’ll get a chance to meet personally. As we want to offer the widest range of food to our members, there are also imported items, but still organic and from reliable suppliers. You’ll also need to bring your own food containers since most of our products are packaging free.
