REAP is an Arizona nonprofit 501(c)(3) with legal status as of 2009. Its purpose is to train organizations on worker owned cooperatives and holistic (fair) trade for those reentering work with a new focus on democratic businesses. REAP’s intention is to develop Knowledge Teams for food security in greenhouse construction and operation, fresh food production and distribution in America and in other countries. Other teams will learn how to develop cooperatives ecosystems and how to develop holistic trade among other countries. These teams will be fully trained by nonprofits to develop new Knowledge Teams. REAP is doing this as a social enterprise.
REAP’s intention is to develop training and other support for establishing worker owned cooperatives and knowledge teams for greenhouse operation, fresh nutritionally dense food production and distribution to consumers in America and in developing countries. REAP is developing training for cooperative ecosystems also in housing, renewable energy, tool making and transportation repair and building, and clothing resale and construction. This will create a small scale regional economy for towns, villages and inner cities. We are also in the midst of developing further training on holistic (fair) trade and Earth centered trade for manufacturing. These sets of training are offered at reasonable cost to other nonprofits who support the people they care for through training for a better world.
