Co-op Weekend-Cancelled for 2019

March 15 @ 7:00 pm - March 17 @ 2:00 pm

Equitable Pioneers is an informal think tank for hashing out cooperative endeavors. This is a great group of cooperative minds with whom to bounce ideas around.

Take this weekend to get away from it all to connect with nature’s winter wonderland and other co-op friends from near and far. Bring a friend, your family, or just come solo and enjoy this lovely season and talk about co-ops. We’ll stoke up the stoves and fill you with hearty foods. Don’t forget your cross country skis, snow shoes and sleds.

Registration will be live by January 31. Save the date!
