Clara Baker on the benefits of networks and CoFED membership

"Everything I've learned about co-ops and starting a co-op I learned from other co-ops and co-opers."

"I wish CoFED had been around when I helped start the Big Spoon Dining Co-op! Becoming a member and joining the network will give your group support at any stage of development or operation, and it will tap you into a network of co-op thinkers and do-ers. Additionally your group will be able to share invaluable advice, experience and support with other teams and CoFEDers as well. Co-operation among co-operatives is one of the main co-op tenants, and I think one of the best ways to do that is to be a member of CoFED."

Clara Baker, Big Spoon, CoFED Student Board Member, Midwest Representative
