Holy shit, Joe Holtz is awash in paper. We have to think back a few short weeks ago to Design Sponge's aesthetic and ascetic home office in order to appreciate the full glory that is Joe Holtz's impossibly cluttered work space at the Park Slope Food Coop. And it must be said: I LOVE IT! In fact, I think Erica and Grace Bonney should showcase Joe's awesome decor on their blogs. Or maybe Hoarders could do an episode.
Joe Holtz—the Food Coop's first paid employee and its longtime General Coordinator—is my personal hero, even though he does make me snort barf occasionally with his zealous righteousness.
Mostly, though, Joe is so low-key, unassuming, nice, and utterly without vanity or ego, you would have no idea that he's a titan of non-profit industry, Crain's NY and Fortune poster boy, and recipient of a Marty Markowitz proclamation...or day...or something.
