Co-ops in the 1970s

A scene from the rough cut about the growth of food co-ops during the 1970s.


“The greatest delight the fields and woods minister is the suggestion of an occult relation between man and the vegetable.  I am not alone and unacknowledged.  They nod to me and I to them.”

~Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Is there a way to use 4:01 – 6:59 in a presentation we give on our local co-op? We are trying to gain membership and I think this is a great segment to add to our presentation.

      Dear Lisa,

      Feel free to use the clips we have posted on our website for your presentation. One of our goals with Food For Change is that it will be helpful to those organizing new food co-ops.
      In cooperation,
      Rob Hagelstein
