Welcome to the Coop!

What is the Coop?

an organic, free-range network of friends who spread friendliness in Northeast Los Angeles and beyond!

Where is the Coop?

everywhere you find friendliness! we began connecting in LA but have spread across the U.S. and Europe.

How does the Coop work?

through intentional micro-gestures of presence and friendliness, we hatch connections, incubate community, and let fly organic collaborations and often become "framily" in supposed social wastelands.
