The Valley Cooperative House Network (VCHN) is an on-going dream of connecting people and cooperative homes in the Connecticut River valley of western Massachusetts. Our goal is to build community, collective economies, and equity for future cooperative projects.
We envision three phases of cooperation.
Community building: How many cooperative houses are there, and what do they share? Let’s network and share events and openings in our houses.
Collective economies: Buying food together, storing food (canning, root cellar, freezers), car sharing, tool sharing…
Building equity: Creating cooperatively owned land and houses.
