Participants will learn about how to start a farm cooperative through this daylong workshop. They will explore ways that farms and farmers cooperate together to access land, share tools and labor, share responsibilities, and to increase their markets. This workshop will share examples of farm cooperatives including worker and producer models.
In the afternoon, participants will work together to design a cooperative farm business. Through this process, new cooperative farm ideas will start to grow and be spread in the Maine food system.
