A worker’s coop is usually a mesh fenced area where you can scatter some corn out for workers to eat
A chicken co-op is a structure that allows the chickens to democratically govern their own egg production and profits thereof.
My take on proper "co-op" usage:
- Cooperative (no hyphen)
- Co-op (hyphen, unless hashtagging #Coop)
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
