Our Mission

Create a platform for local networks to support communities in becoming more self-sufficient, equal and diverse, by cultivating a regenerative culture.
Because, we believe that taking care of the Earth and each other should be part of the bottom-line.

Our Space

In addition to our collective impact network, we created and designed REGENCY, a community space that support systems for localism, and creates opportunities for regenerative projects to form.

Responsible Suppliers for Discounted Everyday Goods

We’ve identified companies who are making socially and environmentally responsible everyday goods. These products are available for purchase at our community drop-ins at a discount, because we pass along the savings that we receive as a wholesaler to our members to acknowledge their contributions to their community and the planet. 

We offer the following discount off of retail price based upon income levels from the US Census Bureau. This structure allows us to make the goods more affordable for everyone.

  • High Income = 25%
    • ($140,000/household per year) 
  • Middle Income = 32.5
    • ($45,000-$139,000/household per year)
