Spread the Seeds

Common Good Cooperatives innovates small business development and participation, peer-led by women of color.

We envision sustainable methods to create connections which inspire the dignity, equity and equality of a diverse community of women. Through economic development models based in systems of access to fresh hyperlocal healthy foods, innovation, and place-making, Common Good Co-op applies a lens focused on gender, class and culture to join women across our region in

seeding health, community and belonging, for us all. 

Founded in 2013 by Kafi Dixon an African American rural and urban farmer, mother of three, and small business owner and Nadia Aiguier co-director, and other women of color interested in community development for working-class families of color in the urban areas of Boston, which they call home.

"Our mission is to create environments of health for lower resourced women of color in the working-class families of New England."

Our Project; Our Story

Boston's First

Urban Farming Co-op

The Women of Color Cooperative Cottage and Urban Farm is an initiative begun by Seeds of Change Solidarity Network & The Common Good Project. With a vision to create equity-based initiatives for African African men and women here in the city of Boston, we began self-funding thoughtful projects based in a cultural competency of communities. Through access to welcoming communal and green space women and men of color across class and experiences come together to envision methods of strengthening lower resourced neighborhoods and communities. 

 

We believe in the creation of neighborhoods in which not only do we live, but in which we thrive.
