We all know that it takes a village to raise a child. But did you know that it takes a entire community to lift the economy? We’re working hard to create jobs in Lompoc, but we need your help. Our model to start worker-owned co-ops entails providing extensive small business training and resources as well as assisting with start-up costs. That means that the workers who take ownership of our co-ops will have the freedom to focus on running successful businesses that fill needs within our community. How can you help? Please consider making a donation to the Project. Every dollar helps.


The Lompoc Co-op Development Project currently has a funding page on pay pal.

We started a green house cleaning worker cooperative in 2012, Green Broom Brigade. We are now researching other industries to start a second co-op.
