Yellow Springs builds local economy to benefit all
A time bank. A worker-owned cooperative food hub. A cooperative entrepreneurial hub with shared services and support. Community-supported industries. Local financing and investing.
These are a few of the many ideas and projects that villagers will be discussing this month at a series of free events, organized by Community Solutions and the YS Resilience Network, that focus on the local economy. The goal, said Community Solutions Executive Director Susan Jennings on Monday, “is to build an economy that provides for as many goods and services locally as nationally — to move us to greater self-sufficiency, greater resilience and greater equity.”
