Steps Toward an Alternative Economy through Community Owned Agriculture (COA)
Workshop date(s) & time(s):
Saturday, March 27, 2010 - 10:30 - 12:00
Saturday, March 27, 10:30 am to noon
Merriam Park Library,
1831 Marshall Ave., St. Paul
This workshop continues a discussion about the COA concept--its rationale and how to implement it. What is under consideration is the beginning of a road to a 21st-century, high-tech subsistence economy, an economy that eventually can replace jobs oriented to ‘the market’ with work meaningful to a community.
