Food co-op around Brooklyn?
Posted August 8th, 2013 - 2:22 pm by from Madrid, Spain (Permalink)
Hi there!

I will be moving to Brooklyn very soon and was wondering whether you people know a food co-op in which I could volunteer. I am not looking to get paid, just to do my part for the community and meet other people interesting in changing things. I am interested in self-managed projects with a horizontal-democratic way of deciding things :)

Warmly,

La_Col

The Park Slope Food Coop! http://foodcoop.com/
But it is very, very difficult to join because they have so many members already.

Thanks Camille and Cassandra for your replies. I do not know yet where in Brooklyn I will be staying(need to look for a flat this coming week, so if you happen to know someone looking for a new flatme--I'm a graduate research student--let me know!). As soon as I establish myself in Brooklyn I will contact more "formally" a co-op. In the mean time, I appreciate very much any kind of information.

Warm wishes,

Hi again,

So! Finally I got a place in Park Slope. As you people said before, they have plenty of people already so it seems that there is no place for new members. Which co-op would be the closest to me? (Besides Park Slop Co-op). Thanks!

Warm wishes,
