October is Co-op Month!

Here we are again! October is the time to celebrate the cooperatives in our communities throughout the US and Canada. The last year has not offered a lot of hope and has tested our resilience, let’s take this month to make sure that our co-op family and community feel our love and support!

Last year, I did a short post on a specific co-op every day, I don’t know that I have the time or stamina to do that this year. It is a busy time. People always turn to cooperatives in times of crisis and this year and 2021 create a moment for cooperatives that might not have been seen since the aftermath of the 1848 economic crash.

Let’s celebrate this month! Let’s celebrate our communities! Let’s celebrate our victories!

The Co-op Decade might just transition to the Co-op Century.
