How to Start a Co-op:HOW TO START A CO OP

An Introductory Course for Farmers!

Are you interested in starting a co-operative?

Join Young Agrarians for their new online course, How to Start a Co-op: An Introductory Course for Farmers!

It can be both inspiring and terrifying to think about starting a co-op. For farmers and farm-adjacent businesses, co-ops have been a tried-and-tested solution for addressing market-based problems.

You will have a chance to learn about the diverse applications of the co-operative model, and practice applying the tools, resources, and knowledge that you can use to co-create your own thriving co-op. This program has been designed for people who want to explore what it means to co-create a farm or farm-adjacent co-operative. You do not need to have prior experience with co-ops nor be a farmer to participate in this program.

Developed by Emi Do, the Young Agrarians Co-op Coordinator, this course aims to help new and aspiring farmers and farm-allies understand the benefits, possibilities and realities of applying co-operative operating models to the farming world.

We hope you can join Young Agrarians for this exciting opportunity to dig into co-operative solutions!
