What is a Coopertive?

A cooperative is "an autonomous association of persons united voluntarily to meet their common economic, social and cultural needs and aspirations through a jointly owned and democratically-controlled enterprise".

Our Story

Cooperative Community Development, Inc. (CCD) is a Baltimore-based nonprofit focused on creating an architecturally beautiful, healthy, diverse, cohesive community of choice built on mutual respect.  We believe it is our shared responsibility in the City of Baltimore to foster inclusivity and embrace diversity – from race, gender, and sexual orientation to economic, educational, and housing choice. 


At CCD, we strive to restore H.E.A.R.T. to the community by creating urban agricultural development opportunities using vacant, city-owned lots.
