GMO-Free Portland is autonomous but cooperation-based. Well, we've seen incredible cooperation at work today. Its January 8th, 2011 and we're participating in the Tipping Point Network from IRT

page shows that from the beginning we hoped that anything we found that works could be shared with other groups through some kind of network.

IRT is just handing this to all of us and its free including webinars. This opportunity to use them to be stronger together is more valuable than money.
