Winds of Change – January 17 2013 – Vanessa Hammond and the Cooperative Movement, Fireweed and Veganiculture

2012 was the Year of the Cooperative.  Vanessa Hammond was introduced to the cooperative model of business organizing when she was 13, more recently travelling the world to educate about and assist with the formation of new coops.  We talk about Victoria’s very successful Health Cooperative, and the upcoming Coop Day on February 23rd.   Then, Fireweed is an Ecofeminist Activist and proponent of Veganiculture, living on Denman Island.  She shares success stories about their potato cooperative, and explains why being vegan and moving to stock free agriculture is the most sustainable method for all of us challenged with global climate change on an overpopulated planet.
