Chris Nichols started the Wood Shop Worker's Co-op with two other participants as part of Groundswell's very first cohort. They've evolved over the last two years to grow into a new space, connect with new clients, and attract new worker-owners. Watch this video as he shares his Groundswell journey and how they're making the city a better place!

Visit the Groundswell Cafe and Clubhouse where we meet, work, and celebrate at 566 Powell Street, in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, on the unceded territories of the Coast Salish people.
