The film will be followed by a panel discussion about worker cooperatives and urban agriculture in NYC which will feature a practicing urban farmer, a veteran worker coop participant and myself, Gil Lopez, budding urban ag. worker coop entreprenour.I look forward to sharing more about what exactly Nourishing Cities is and how we plan on operating. As well as drawing inspiration from the trailblazers leading the way.
The event is the first one organized by our group but it will definitely not be the last. I am excited about what Nourishing Cities will be doing in a business capacity as well as the social aspects of the coop, like this educational community event.
We are offering this screening as part of our ioby (in our back yards) fundraising campaign and we are suggestioin a $10-15 tax deductable donation that can be made via the Nourishing Cities ioby project page (https://ioby.org/project/green-worker-coop-academy-nourishing-cities) or folks can pay cash at the door.
We are raising these funds both to pay the tuition for, and as the first team building assignment in, a 16 week intensive Coop Academy offered by Green Worker Cooperatives and WIBO (Workshop in Business Opportunities). I hope that you can come enjoy the film learn more about what Nourishing Cities will be creating in the future and participate in community building around our new enterprise.
