The Cooperative

Learn who, what, where, when, why, and how


The Coop was formed by 6 of us, including Ruth-Claire Weintreub (d.2018). To see our current enrollment, check the memberships page.


We formed in the long winter of 2017, and began opening memberships in Q2 of 2018


We feel the democratic inclusion of many in guiding the project is obvious and want to break from the company-town paradigm.


We are based at Arcosanti, in the high desert of Arizona. Our members are around the world.
