These are some practical, simple steps to getting involved in a solidarity economy by someone who has written and participated in a solidarity economy for many years. The first step is to think of it as a process, not a destination. it is a process of relative withdrawal from buying produce at a grocery store to growing your own food. Secondly, it involves putting aside some money earmarked for “solidarity economy”. Thirdly, it involves joining with others to fund existing cooperative projects – or starting a coop of your own.
