Stakeholder Ownership and Democratic Control

Green City Growers Cooperative ,

Practice description:

GCGC is a worker cooperative, 80% owned by its worker-members, and 20% by the Evergreen cooperative group. Evergreen, to which GCGC owes its existence, also has half of the board seats and has authority over mission-critical decisions while worker-owners, who have the other half, are responsible for operational business decisions. This governance arrangement has enabled the cooperative’s worker-owners to gradually develop their cooperative and business knowledge and skills.
