Coop Network
"Coop Farm Meeting Places" will be lined up with the existing communication structures that an NGO has in the region among the farmers. For Owerri, Nigeria NGO church buildings exist across the region and the majority of prospective Farm Coop members attend these weekly. Farmer Meetings will be held regularly at these locations. 5 – 10% of these Farm Meeting Places will house permanent offices with small staffs. The chart below accounts for 110 Farm Meeting places corresponding to existing parishes/churches (“P”), 5 or 10 offices with small staffs, member Farmers (“Farm 1-P1” standing for the first farmer in the first Farm Meeting Place), and the Regional Farming Coop office that centralizes all the scale functional groups supported by the Coop. Other Meeting Places will also be added where the NGO church structure is thin or non-existent.
