The 2015 Co-op Tour will be on Thursday, April 30, 2015  from 1pm to 6pm. The bus will depart from the Midtown Sacramento Courtyard Marriott promptly at 1pm and end at Pachamama Coffee Co-op where participants are invited to stay for a reception (or return to the hotel).

Tour participants will go behind the front doors of these diverse co-ops to see and learn the “cooperative difference” for each, including: how they democratically govern the business, how the cooperative serves members, and how members share the profits or other benefits of the business. The tour will include:

Sacramento Natural Foods is a consumer food cooperative that has served the Sacramento community since 1973.
