“The Co-op Revolution tells the fascinating story of how grassroots activists at the vanguard of the 1970s whole-food movement, through hard work and a strong commitment to ‘food for people, not for profit,’ created gender-equitable jobs and sustainable workplaces that left enduring legacies.”
—Kate Bird, author of Vancouver in the Seventies: Photos from a Decade That Changed the City

“The Co-op Revolution is the story of a small tribe of people working to make their dreams and beliefs a practical reality. Times have changed, dreams have evolved, but it’s increasingly important to remember an era gone by that sourced so much of what we take for granted in our lives today. Get comfy, crack open a jar of your favourite preserves and enjoy this taste of history.” —Rick Scott, musician
