Evergreen Cooperatives in the Cleveland, Ohio area have been a success. In particular, Green City Growers is now one of the largest greenhouses in the country that is Worker/Owner driven.
It is clear that many critical issues are addressed when workers have equity in the businesses and we bring democracy to the workplace.
Cleveland is a model for how to revitalize the US and world economy. It is to our highest benefit to use the Worker Owned Co-Op model to reach the energy efficiency and drought goals set in California.
Let us install community solar grids, water purification systems, and drought tolerant food production systems as a network of Co-Operative Businesses to revitalize our local Monterey Bay economy and ecology.
