Cooperative communities nurture and empower
Cooperative communities give us a way to help each other outside the realm of dollars and cents. We can give up the idea that we have to do everything, and pay for everything, ourselves. Getting away from our intensely commercial culture would be a welcome shift. See Brainstorming Ideas for potential solutions to our universal challenges of child care, elder care, housing, transportation, food, nutrition, social isolation and more.

As neighborhood diners were replaced with Starbucks, McDonald’s and Denny’s, we lost something very valuable. Where neighbors gather and interact forms a community’s warp and woof. Neighborhoods need friendly, safe and affordable places to meet and a diner is the perfect solution. Time and Talent – Precious Resources talks about cooperative neighborhood diners that can provide tangible benefits and anchor a community.
