Green Living Co-op

WMG's Co-op will help you conserve water and energy, grow food, create wildlife habitat, all while saving money!
Our Co-op uses a barn-raising model, where you learn practical skills by helping implement projects at members' homes. When you are ready to transform your home landscape, you benefit from discounted rates on WMG services, and volunteer labor from your fellow Co-op members helps you get the job done.
