If you want to seriously change inequality there is a small thing you can do. Support a small southern US black owned coop so they can pasteurize their awesome pecan milk to have a longer shelf life so they can ship it. https://pecanmilk.com/ This coop must survive but they are in a catch-22 where they do not make enough to qualify for a loan. Their product is so good that it will be a sustainable coop venture. Without us they have no real way out. Ideas are welcomed.
@FreeScholar This is cool, do you know if they have any other sites/social? Right now their site is being redesigned, so it is pretty sparse.
@FreeScholar I guess they're already trying to partner with local restaurants, coffee shops, etc.?
@FreeScholar done :-) Hope they succeed!
@FreeScholar Can we assume that they've already reached out to the Federation of Southern Cooperatives/Land Assistance Fund? Are they the ones would can't help finance them?
@FreeScholar Thanks heaps. This is why social media can be worth it. I’m forwarding this need to some small scale pecan farmers right now.
@FreeScholar any more info on that? Their website has a donate button but I’m not finding any narrative around it
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
