Greenbelt Cooperative Alliance

Did you know that there are eight cooperatives plus four incubator coops serving the Greenbelt community? If you want to learn more about how Greenbelt cooperatives work together, you've come to the right place. Stay tuned to this page for news and upcoming events sponsored by the Greenbelt Cooperative Alliance (GCA).

October is National Co-op Month

Cooperatives throughout the country have been celebrating October as Co-op Month since 1964, when it was proclaimed a national event. Co-op Month provides an excellent opportunity for cooperatives to educate their members, the general public and leaders about the many advantages of cooperative membership. Here is a list of this year's events!


September 14, 10-2: Greenbelt Farmers’ Market

GCA will promote upcoming October coop events. Activities will include balloons and button making!


October 2, 5-7pm: Healthy Happy Hour at the Greenbelt Co-op Supermarket & Pharmacy

October 3, 5-7pm: Wine Tasting at the Greenbelt Co-op Supermarket & Pharmacy

October 3-5: Rapidan Work Weekend

During a work weekend, volunteers come to camp and work on many projects to keep the cabins and grounds in good shape, and improve them as well. This year we will begin major construction work on our smallest cabin.  It's a fun time for camp members to spend time together, and also for non-members to see all of camp and consider whether they might wish to become members. Work Weekends begin Friday afternoon, and end Sunday afternoon; volunteers are welcome for the entire time or just part. The busiest period is Saturday, when the largest number of volunteers are working.  For more information, please see our website at or contact Tom Jones at 301-474-6001.
