Abstract: This paper's stated intention is to enrich the research team's initial description of alternative businesses, and A-Way Express in particular. It traces the emergence and entrenchment of learning as a key feature of psychiatric survivor-run or "alternative" businesses. This is followed by a description of how learning takes place at A-Way Express. The researcher's methodology in these sections is to re-read previous research projects and results through the lense of "informal learning," supplemented with new interviews where necessary.
