@SmokeAndAsh I'm the mod on duty this week, welcome to social.coop!

straight up I am in love with water fountains. whenever I look at a public water fountain I go "this is literally a monument to a functioning civilization." when I look at a public water fountain I think about all of the technology, all of the water filtration and pipes and infrastructure that came together to provide Me drinkable water in a public space
some urban designer built Me a fountain to drink from because I might be thirsty. Literally the opposite of hostile architecture.

I got the NYC Small Business Services commissioner to talk about worker coops on a podcast! Yay! Check it out and also hear from Brooklyn Packers, a very cool NYC coop here: heritageradionetwork.org/episo

Does Regenerative Agriculture Have a Race Problem? (yes. The answer is yes, of course it bloody does)

BIPOC farmers and advocates say the latest trend in agriculture is built on an age-old pattern of cultural theft and appropriation.

Most inspiring coop content I could send to a coop curious friend? Fun reads, videos, etc

Ok big question that I want to expand my audience for. Solidarity economy folks: How do you save for retirement? Do you put money in the stock market?

I know there’s projects like the Next Egg to figure out how to move more retirement money in the solidarity economy, but to be honest the 0-3% returns that are typical for those investments don’t seem to add up to a real retirement fund

y'all ever get that heartache for a kinder, softer, more equitable world?

This is Abby and she’s a mini horse and I get to see her every day this month ❤️❤️❤️

Soul Fire Farm put out an amazing series of videos a month ago. They're skillshare videos talking about seed keeping, green house propagation, honouring the land and more.
Soul Fire Farm is a BIPOC run community farm focused on ending racism and injustice in the food system.
