Sustaining Cooperation in the Local Food Economy

Our research team presents our developing work on cooperation in the local food economy in Maine. We explain the role of social engagement in local food, and detail our measurements of cooperation in cooperative organizations such as food co-ops and food buying clubs using economic experiments. Finally, we have a discussion about the challenge of supporting the new local food economy in Maine, and what cooperation science can offer.
