Spring Ponder 2011 - Envisioning a Cooperative Community in Northeast Minneapolis
On Saturday, April 16, Eastside Food Co-op sponsored the Spring Ponder, our annual member visioning event. This year's Spring Ponder was "Envisioning a Cooperative Community in Northeast Minneapolis" and we asked our members what economic or social need did they have that could be served by a cooperative in our community. It was a great event, well attended, and sparked some great ideas about new co-ops we could form.
What's next? How can we build on the enthusiasm and excitement generated at the Spring Ponder, and engage more stakeholders to collaborate in a cooperative future? This web page is a beginning. Below you will find a listing of the "Co-op Dream" idea from the ponder, along with contact people for each concept. EFC has agreed to host a formative meeting for any of the concepts that get to the planning stage, and will provide support in developing an appropriate structure for the fledging co-op.
If you have another idea to add to the list, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
