A co-operative is a group of people acting together to meet the common needs and aspirations of its members, sharing ownership and making decisions democratically. Co-operatives are not about making big profits for shareholders, but creating value for customers – this is what gives co-operatives a unique character, and influences. (1)

 

The Blue Corn Coop is a consumer’s cooperative between our community in Seattle and the Fernandez family, Latino farmers from Sunnyside, Washington.  The family grows all of their own herbs, fruits and vegetables using all organic technics, although they are not currently certified as an organic farm by the State.
