Five years ago, I started the Portland Meat Collective. Last year, I helped three communities in Washington and California start their own Meat Collectives. This year, I launched the Meat Collective Alliance, a nonprofit whose mission it is to help individuals and communities across the country start their own Meat Collectives. We just launched our website!
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.
