The COVID pandemic. The Floyd Rebellion. Wildfires. It’s just soo much. We take solace and comfort in remembering that we are all in this together, and that is the only way we will get through it– TOGETHER.
Here are two upcoming opportunities to learn more about what that means for us.
Monday, Sept14 at 6pm we will be hosting a virtual “Introduction to Cooperation Humboldt.” If you were ever curious about who Cooperation Humboldt is, what we do, and how you can get involved, this is for you!
Join core team member Marina Lopez and co-founder Ruthi Engelke for an introduction into the who, what, why, and when of Cooperation Humboldt. They will provide an overview of the organization, our theory of change, the principles of a Solidarity Economy, and how each project fits into creating a Solidarity Economy right here on the North Coast of California.

Sat, Sept 19 at 12pm we will host a virtual gathering to share our efforts to create an Ecovillage Development in northern Humboldt County. Our goal is to create a community based on sustainable food, energy and housing practices. We are looking for people who share a similar vision for life in the 21st century, value consensus-based decision making, and are looking to live in a multi-generational village of 10 to 25 people. The current founders group envisions some tiny homes and many common facilities; a workshop for creative reuse projects; a medicinal herb, native plant, and food garden; an arts & media production center; and a commercial kitchen to create a functional live and work environment.
Are you interested in a smaller or bigger village, or a spot farther flung from town? Do you have a theme around which you wish to develop the culture of your village? This is just one beginning, and we want to hear from you. Cooperation Humboldt is offering resources, support, and is helping to incubate an independent network of many ecovillages. Come join us for an Introductory Meeting where we will discuss all of the components, explore available properties, and help you network with like-minded builders and dreamers.
We hope to see you soon,
Your friends at Cooperation Humboldt
