Green Worker Cooperatives
People like Maricruz, Alexandra, and Janvieve, co-founders of Ginger Moon, who help new moms and their babies stay healthy by providing nutritious personal chef services for new moms who are often too overwhelmed with caring for their new baby to spend much time cooking.
Or people like Victor and Harold, teenage co-founders of P.O.L.I.D.O, an eco-friendly skateboard design cooperative.
Green Worker Cooperatives has worked with these and others to launch their businesses cooperatively and green. But most people don't even know that shared ownership and management is possible. And that's the first step. Help Green Worker Cooperatives spread the message that cooperatives are possible. And help us do it where the need is great...in the streets, parks, living rooms, community centers, community colleges, and houses of worship of the Bronx. We're undertaking an aggressive outreach campaign over this Summer and Fall to promote worker cooperatives and recruit at least six teams of aspiring cooperative entrepreneurs from the Bronx to register for the Spring session of the Coop Academy. The Coop Academy is our intensive 5-month green business boot camp for cooperatives. YES! magazine called
the Coop Academy, one of seven co-op initiatives set to change the economy
We're from the Bronx, a place long neglected politically and economically, with high incidences of all the wrong statistics, yet home to resilient people who create their own solutions. We're not waiting for the future. We're creating it. Join us in creating a cooperative future by donating today.

Help us build a cooperative movement from the bottom up. Last weekend's Big Bronx Sancochazo was an amazing success. We fed about 150 people, held workshops, made our own hoola hops, danced, did yoga, painted faces, and cooked and cooked and cooked. And it was all done collectively with donated time, food, and materials.
Help us continue to spread the word about cooperatives.
