Building a democratic economy rooted in community.

October is Co-op Month!

Each October, cooperatives all across the country celebrate the role, accomplishments and contributions of cooperatives. In the state of Maine, Co-Op Month is sponsored by Cooperative Maine.

The 2015 Co-op Month theme is “Growing Our Communities Through Cooperatives.” The goal of Co-op Month is to shed light on the many contributions of co-ops to their communities and the nation while educating the public and policy makers about the benefits of cooperative institutions in different sectors of the economy, including: housing, finance, food, childcare and education among many others.
