"It’s been nearly four years since a group of local dreamers and community organizers founded Cooperation Humboldt with the lofty goal of pushing for a more equitable world. In that time, the organization has launched numerous programs focusing on the community’s needs — from food education, to housing, to arts workshops, just to name a few — while also attempting to prepare people for a potential post-capitalist world.
On today’s miraculous 50th episode of Humboldt Holding Up, LoCO‘s apparently never-quit podcast, we chat with David Cobb, longtime Green Party activist and one of the founders of Cooperation Humboldt about all aspects of the organization plus other topics, including:
- His journey from student political organizer to earning the 2004 Green Party nomination for President and later working as campaign manager for 2016 nominee Jill Stein
- Following his heart to Humboldt County and why he feels at home here
- A discussion of Cooperation Humboldt’s various community programs and its leadership structure
- What a future CH “Ecovillage” might look like
- The upcoming launch of the Full Cycle Compost, a new CH-incubated, worker-owned business"
