Co-opportunity, the Rise of A Community Owned MarketBook - 2015
Bringing together historical facts, figures and personal recollections, this history of Santa Monica's Co-opportunity natural foods store recounts the many ways in which Co-opportunity was the Southern California beachhead during the transformative years of 1970-1990, when California's cooperative laws and farmers market regulations were changed, a national infrastructure for debt financing was created for consumer cooperatives, and food retailing was radically changed to reflect the burgeoning environmental and health ethic fueled by books such as Rachel Carson's "Silent Spring" and Frances Moor Lappe's "Diet for a Small Planet."
