On the first day of chilly fall weather, Cleveland Owns and our allies visited The BC, PowerUp Purchasing Cooperative, and Cleveland Solar Cooperative on the co-op scavenger hunt. Participants learned about each co-op and got gift certificates to Phoenix, our favor worker-owned cafe, and Rust Belt Riders, our favorite soon-to-be-worker-owned composter ;)
Then we regrouped with at Luke Easter Park for lunch and conversation with Brett Jones of Park North Capital, former of Evergreen Cooperatives. We invited all attendees to share their visions for a cooperative future in Cleveland.
And did I mention @forestcitybrass brought the funk?!?! They rocked!
Shout out to @browngirlest1971 for the delish food and @juliankhan for the photos!
