Be part of a community where you bring your talents, challenges, wisdom, and voice to build a just, green, and thriving local economy that helps everyone.

SBN is a safe and supportive place where you learn, grow, share, and use your power to protect the environment, serve communities, and bolster our economy.

Where you sit down with policy and decision makers to have your voice heard and get your needs met.

Where you deepen your relationships, share best practices, and confront complex challenges with people who understand your experience as a local independent business.

Where a community has your back. That’s your SBN community.
