Yes, it's time we're reading about the best kept secret in the alternative business world. Cooperatives are the model we should be learning about. They are the future. We can all support this movement by patronizing our local Bay Area Cooperatives. In addition to the Arizmendi/Cheeseboard bakeries, there is Rainbow Grocery (SF), Jackson Hardware, and Alvarado Street Bakery that sells organic breads to stores in the Bay Area and throughout the country. (I have written an article about Bay Area Coops on the Huff Post): http://www.huffingtonpost.com/georgia-kell…
Praxis Peace Institute, the Sonoma non-profit that I direct, will take a group for a study tour of the Mondragon Cooperatives in Spain, Sept. 9 - 15, 2012. Information is available on our website: http://www.praxispeace.org
