NCGA is pleased to offer a series of “toolbox” manuals to provide guidance and best practices in various specific topic areas. Some of the manuals were originally published by the Northcountry Cooperative Development Fund (with funding support from NCB Capital Impact). NCGA is updating previously published titles and will also be developing new manuals.
Food Co-op Toolbox Manuals are now available only for electronic distribution (as a PDF file). There is a one-time charge per manual (price is noted on each manual) for any co-op or group that wishes to purchase a copy. Such copies may be shared freely with among all involved individuals of the purchasing co-op. However, copies may only be used for the benefit of the purchasing co-op. To make a copy available to a partner organization (non-profit or for-profit), please either have that organization purchase their own copy or contact the CGIN office for arrangements.
These manuals can be purchased by CGIN members directly by logging into the CGIN site. For co-ops that are not CGIN members, or for other organizations, contact the CGIN office about purchasing an electronic copy of any of the titles.
