Purpose

A Coworking and Makerspace Cooperative in Philmont, NY


About

We’re a member-run, 501c3 nonprofit cooperative. Our mission is to create an association of freelancers providing community services and youth programming to local residents and artists. Our offerings include, among other things, workshops, makerspace, classes, afterschool programming, and space for Philmont’s community to congregate.

We’re good neighbors

Members come from all over the Hudson Valley. We engage with the surrounding community via free programs and by donating space and providing visibility to local organizations.

We wash our own mugs

Members build, maintain, clean, and fix things to keep costs down and build sweat equity. We embrace the cooperative model of governance and make decisions slowly and intentionally.
