Spring Rose Growers Cooperative
The four farm businesses that shared land at the Farley Center in 2010 formed a legal cooperative, Spring Rose Growers Cooperative, with help from the UW Center for Cooperatives. The co-op has now expanded to include 8 farm businesses, all owned by Hmong, Latino and African American farmers. They have an office in Madison at Centro Hispano of Dane County, 810 W Badger Rd. This learning and support cooperative utilizes grant funding to provide an intensive technical assistance program.
Throughout the year Spring Rose Growers Cooperative offers a number of farming related classes that are open to the public. All workshops are free and translation is provided in Hmong and Spanish. Contact Spring Rose for more information and recent listings.
