The Big Bronx Sancochazo! El Gran Sancochazo del Bronx!
Come out on Saturday, September 24th, to enjoy the biggest largest sancocho in NYC!!!
We’ll have interactive games and activities for all ages.
The Sancochazo is organized by Green Worker Cooperatives, and our goal is to provide an opportunity for the community to come together, learn and get involved in the cooperative movement in NYC.
The story of Stone Soup, which most of us read as children, captures the essence of the impact of community effort, that by working together, with everyone contributing what they can, a greater good can be achieved. Similar to that story, the Stone Soup Event will challenge community partners –cooperatives, social justice organizations, restaurants, and the community‐ to come together and get energized.
So join us, bring an ingredient for the soup, share a skill with the community but more than anything, have fun!!! Bring a team of your friends, family, neighbors to play together!! You will want to take advantage of the beautiful day and have sancocho or other delights on the grass under a tree.
The Co-op Olympics is a playful way to experience a culture of cooperation and celebrate teamwork in a way that is exciting and fun. The Co-op Olympics will be a series of cooperative games that will allow teams to showcase their mastery of the skills needed to build and sustain supportive relationships in all aspects of life.
MEET OUR CO-OPS
We’ll have stations for existing cooperatives throughout the park! Come meet + greet Bronxites and cooperators from across the city who have started their own business as worker-owners. They will have products for sale and offers on the services they provide.
