ABOUT THE CO-OPS
Batty Works We make body products from natural, organic and green ingredients. A hybrid consumer and worker cooperative founded by people with mental illness and/or disability who need economical and vocational empowerment.

Heal the Healers Restorative Network Builds capacity among a network of healers of all kinds. Fosters a culture of self & community care for healers in the face of frequent burn-out. People are seeking alternative and complementary knowledge from indigenous and traditional healers more frequently - we are looking to co-create more sustainable healing practices in service of broader communal well-being.

Ityopia Rootz Rastafari whole food experience for a healthier life. Born out of our desire to make good, healthy food accessible to everyone, and to break the cycle of diet related diseases in our families & community. People can live healthier lives by consuming great-tasting, high-quality, nutritious vegan food that appeals to everyone, while at the same time doing our part to support a sustainable earth.

Khao'na Kitchen We offer wellness coaching, educational workshops/curriculum, and the catering of traditional Indian + Filipino meals with a healthy twist.

MoFya! Food Trucks provide affordable, sustainable, delectable Caribbean fusion cuisine for the mind, body, soul and environment. In a few words, we provide Mobile Fusion For Every Body!
