The New Economy Incubator Committee of Weavers Way fosters models of locally-based, co-designed, cooperative and collaborative development. We hold out a vision of shared enterprise that can catalyze communities, as community members take their economies into their own hands. We are focusing our attention on Germantown, in particular, and Northwest Philadelphia, more broadly.
We have been an integral part of launching the Free Loan Association for Germantown, the Northwest Philadelphia Solar Cooperative and are currently working on bringing a regular Farmers' Market to Germantown. We are constantly looking for new ideas and for people who want to take ownership of them.
