North Country History

Exactly one month ago, KFAI's neighbor, the North Country Co-op closed for good. It was the first food cooperative in the Twin Cities and was its longest-lasting, surviving for 37 years.

KFAI's Lauren Knapp and Emily Torgrimson bring you the story of North Country's beginnings, which at its heart, is a story of people taking an idea, and making something together.
