The harvest throughout the year is shared in depots, twice a week, around the region. The distribution is organized by the supporters. It doesn’t consist of standardized boxes but of pools of vegetables from which every supporter can take according to their needs. Several tools in the depots are used to create transparency about the stocks of that day. Furthermore the community as a whole is encouraged to form working groups to organize beyond the basic production, such as in theoretical reflection, processing of left-overs, storage of produce; among others. If the working groups need any form of support (money, skills resources) to function well, this can be discussed and solved in the generally assembly.
Through this experiment we aim for transforming certain capitalist social relations and principles:
-Voluntary contribution instead of exchange, value and commodities.
-Useful doing instead of abstract work in competition,
-Empowerment of supporters.
Also to be discussed:
-Problems and Perspectives
Transparency of the contributions.
Principle of desire vs. responsibility.
Claiming means of production.
Limits to demonetisation.
Lack of self-organisation.
Access to non-capitalist goods.
Internal structure and communication.
Means and/or ends.
