The central Arkansas delegation is now safe in sound in Massachusetts at the Eastern Conference for Workplace Democracy! They’re learning all kinds of amazing things and will be bringing all this knowledge back to the larger community in the near future!

Thanks so much to everyone who helped to support getting them there. If you’re not already familiar with this delegation, be sure and read a previous piece here:

This delegation is an outgrowth of Ed Whitfield’s recent visit to Little Rock and you can read more about that by going here. 

They’re being at this conference is the result of years of visioning and hard work so be sure and follow their work at Solfood Catering and Box Populi. 

Here’s a photo from one of the first sessions. Stay tuned and be sure and follow them online. If you live in the region and want to learn more about the growing cooperative movement don’t hesitate to contact them directly or us and we’ll get you in touch.
