Cooperatives Workshop at the BUGS Farmers Market

  • House of Manna 7240 Frankstown Avenue Pittsburgh, PA, 15208 United States (map)

This is an informal workshop on the advantages of a worker-owned business. What kind of opportunity do they offer? How would you start on or turn an existing business into a cooperative?

We'll focus on food-oriented business for this workshop since our workshop partner Black Urban Gardeners and Farmers Cooperative of Pittsburgh (BUGS) has a mission to address food deserts, involve more African Americans in producing their own food, and supporting cooperative business. 

People with an idea for any type of cooperative, or just those curious about cooperatives, are most welcome to come!

Later Event: October 13
