Let's get down to the nitty gritty.

Our programs are built around basic human needs, designed to catalyze transformational shifts to acknowledge that these needs are, in fact, inalienable rights that should never be subject to commodification.

We’re working to transform Humboldt County into a regenerative community that can sustain life and future generations as we face climate crises and natural disasters.

Systemic culture shift manifests itself through artistic expression. That’s why we engage with artists who share our vision of a cooperative society.
