Our People

The Tauranga Community Co-op is run by volunteers. So many of our members give freely of their time to make it run smoothly. We have three main people who spend LOTS of time making sure the co-op works. Introducing:

Natashia Lucas

Natashia & Eve

Natashia moved from Wellington to Tauranga in January of 2016. When she arrived she looked for a co-op similar to the one she’d been part of in Wellington but just couldn’t find one. She was determined to set one up asap, but first she welcomed her second baby in May of 2016. So setting up the co-op had to wait until 2017! And here we are! She is wife to Michael (a very talented software developer), and has two little ones, Eve, who is 2.5 years old and Bethany who is 14 months old. She LOVES good food, is the local chapter leader of the Weston A. Price Foundation and loves jumping off Tauranga Wharf with friends in the middle of winter!
