Cooperatives in Ward 6 and DC

After spending the morning writing a post on consumption inequality, I realized that I need to read more about the topic. Instead, in honor of the upcoming UN International Year of Cooperatives in 2012, I decided to start a DC Cooperatives map. So far, I've been amazed by the number of cooperatives in DC. You can see housing cooperatives, cooperative schools, a cooperative bank (though there are many credit unions that I didn't include), energy coops, a purchasing coop, a cooperative grocery, etc.

P.S. There is some talk of a co-op bakery on H St NE.

P.P.S. Let me know other cooperatives in town, and I'll add them. Thanks!

P.P.P.S. [6/6/2012] See the Co-op Directory and Co-op DC Group.
