Cooperation Humboldt helps to build a solidarity economy on California’s North Coast. We support existing cooperative efforts and create new solutions where needed. A solidarity economy empowers us to meet our needs in harmony with nature, without exploiting anyone. It puts people and planet over profit by prioritizing collaboration over competition and cooperation over domination.

The Tool Lending Library aims to cultivate a resilient and thriving community by inspiring empowerment, providing tools, networking opportunities, and a space for creative expression and cooperation.

We exist to:

Encourage increased use of holistic skills and practices to improve quality of life, resilience, and sustainability.

Restore the value of labor to families and individuals struggling to live within a corporatized reality.

Provide hands-on learning opportunities by and for community members.

Stimulate our local economy by encouraging exchange and shared consumption.
