"In order for something to flourish, a seed needs to be planted and the bud nurtured. Over time, the cultivation of what is solely an idea can turn it into a reality. In South Boston, engrained in our spirits and imbedded in our persons are ideals and mores that foster those seedlings of growth. From personal progress to provincial produce to pedaling provisions, here are three examples of when you combine a little ingenuity, some hard work and a lot of determination: anything is possible." - South Boston Today

A year ago today we incorporated BCD as a Worker Owned Cooperative. We set out to do things a little differently. In our first year of operation we have successfully held our democratic principles, our commitment to building a sustainable business by opting to invest in Cargo Bicycles rather than automobiles. As stakeholders in the community and as a business we have advocated for advancements in infrastructure for all road users, but our mission remains the same, reduce the number of vehicles on the road to ensure the lasting beauty of the Boston area.
BCD has stepped up and we have become leaders in our business community, from our active membership in the Sustainable Business Network of Massachusetts, to the strong commitment in participating and building the worker cooperative movement in WORCN and The United States Federation of Worker Cooperatives. This year BCD was awarded an emerging leadership scholarship to attend the Eastern Conference for Workplace Democracy. We are proud of all that our clients and worker owners have accomplished this year.
We are lucky to be doing what we love with clients who love their work and appreciate our hard effort and diligence to get the job done. We look forward to our next year with as much excitement and enthusiasm as the first. We have a firm foundation that we are building on and would like to thank everyone who has helped make that possible!

At the end of the 2011 East Coast Messenger Stage Race we had the opportunity to tour the National Mall in D.C. It so happend that they had recently opened the Martin Luther King Jr Memorial and we were able to take some snapshots. BCD believes in Dr. Kings vision and we will be closed this Monday in observance of MLK Day.

Today BCD caught up with the Lexicon of sustainability over at the Thursday night farmers market in Union Sq Somerville, one of our favorite hangouts outside of Boston. While we were picking up a loaf of bread and cheese, our attention was drawn to a pop up installation about sustainability. Check out what its all about and their event schedule here. We fully back the metro area’s farmers markets and if you cant make it to them give us a call!
