As part of the 2012 Year of the Co-op, OFC is exchanging workers with a Co-operative in Venezuela! Two staff members leave for Venezuela next week, and will spend five weeks working alongside and learning from Cecosesola staff. Then, in May, several Cecosesola staff will visit us in Olympia and do the same!

Follow our intrepid Co-op travelers' blog! Alejandra and Emily will keep us abreast of their travels and their work with Cecosesola with regular updates.

We're not the only ones celebrating the Year of the Co-op - the National Cooperative Grocers' Association has created a "tour" of Co-op's across the country, including a video series on different Co-ops across the country. The first video premiers on Jan. 21st! Check it out.
