Local Sprouts Cooperative: Community Through Food

DESCRIPTION

Local Sprouts Cooperative in Maine is a unique, democratically controlled organization that develops self-reliance rooted in local sustenance with such innovative programs as their Community Supported Kitchen.

Currently located in the heart of downtown Portland, the CSK dishes out scrumptious, pre- prepared meals in exchange for small monetary payments, Time Dollars (an attractive bartering system), or volunteer time. Sponsored by Local Sprouts Cooperative, the Burdock Gathering is multi-generational, weeklong event that promotes alternatives to capitalism, sharing of knowledge and information through workshops, and of course delicious, local food.
