|Why do you think this project is appropriate for the course assignment?|
This coop is an example of negentropy. It contains all the requirements to implement a systemic framework. It has the potential to unite strategic agents (before isolated) to create a network and increase the value of each individual initiative. It fosters local use and unites local producers and consumers. Moreover, it is aligned with the social and solidarity economy values.
Ground: The project has been developed from a solution-oriented approach, not from the potential of the place and the community.
