Earth Designs Cooperative is 20-employee landscaping company in Rosendale, New York, in the Hudson Valley. The founder of the young company converted it to a worker cooperative as it grew in order to retain employees who might otherwise see the work as fulfilling but temporary. The company was restructured to give employees greater opportunity for professional growth, investment and the pride of ownership, while the founder stayed on as a member.
