Got a business idea but think you don’t have enough time, money, knowledge, connections… to do it?
Love the idea of starting a business but can’t stand the idea of being “the Boss”?
Want to start a business that’s “a force for good” in your community?
Got an existing business you want to sell without “selling out”?

If you answered “Yes” to any of these, then join Green Worker Cooperatives for an exciting presentation and discussion on worker-owned cooperative businesses, what they are and how you can start one. Ideas and questions highly encouraged.

Green Tips!

Bee proactive!

A few things you can do to help keep bees healthy:

  • plant different flowers that bloom throughout the season for the bees;

    • native plants and other perennials

    • bloom colors of yellow, white,  blue, and purple

  • watch for neonicotinoid-free note on plant tags- some tags will claim that insecticides were used for ‘your plant’s health’ (but NOT for the bees!)

  • leave the blossoms until they expire

  • plant plants with fragrant flowers with a long bloom season

  • consider early blooming plants for bees that have had little nourishment over the winter
