Whether you are a current or prospective producer with the Patchwork Alliance Cooperative, this is for you!
Today we know our local economy is not strong enough to:
Feed our region
Affect disparities in resource and market access
Be a stronghold in case of broad scale economic depression
Be accessible to producers of all scales
Be accessible to consumers of all means
Only we can empower ourselves to cooperatively:
Plan and implement a region wide food system
Create systems to affect access issues, including food, land, equipment, and other resources for both consumers and producers
Plan and experiment in alternative economic models
Support each other as producers in the way of skill and resource sharing, education, surplus management and equal access to market
Create dialogue between consumers and producers in order to address the market’s needs
If this resonates with you, you are exactly who we are looking to collaborate with!
But how exactly does Patchwork Alliance work?
In this video Sunil, founder and worker-owner, shares everything you need to know about producer ownership at Patchwork Alliance!
