Washington University Cooperative

 

Members of the Wash U community are working to create a cooperative network

The WashU Coop is now a Student Union funded group,
and will soon have an official website.

Options for involvement are:

  • Potluck Dinners
  • Local organic food buying
  • Community Garden
  • Cooperative Housing

Ultimately we hope to promote:

  • Diverse Community
  • Social Responsibility
  • Ecological Sustainability
  • Exchange of skills, knowledge, and ideas.

If you're interested, please email us at WashUCoop@yahoo.com

We will send you updates on our progress.
