I have spent the last thirty years working to strengthen cooperatives in Asia, Africa and Latin America. I know the value and values of coops. I also know that Amherst is a supportive area for coops, and I am excited to see Common Share taking off. Let’s work together to make our coop strong, resilient and a model of community in action.
Providing our community with easy access to culturally diverse, nutritious local foods while keeping a low carbon footprint for the earth, helping our farmers preserve our local farmlands, and ensuring job security, fair wages, and benefits to our workers.
