El Dorado Meat Collective in California Launches: The 4th MC in the Country!

Last April I managed to raise nearly $30,000 on Kickstarter so that I could help other people start their own Meat Collectives in their own communities. With some of that money, I helped the Olympia Meat Collective and Seattle Meat Collective launch in Washington State. Both have held a handful of sold-out classes in the past six months. While they are still feeling their way into their communities and clientele, they continue to learn and refine and customize the Meat Collective model for themselves. And I love watching them and supporting them in their efforts.

So it is with great excitement that yet another Meat Collective has launched! One of the Kickstarter campaign’s very enthusiastic backers, Jon Gonzalez, has just launched the El Dorado Meat Collective in El Dorado County, California. Jon came up to Portland to observe a few classes this summer, and we had many exchanges of emails and phone conversations, but largely he pulled it all together himself.
