**MEMBERSHIP ENROLLMENT BEGINS FEBRUARY 2017**

We make the road by walking. ~ Antonio Machado 
Now is the time. Let's grow food and build community. Join us!

Based on community conversations we've had, we have redesigned our program to better meet the desires and needs of our growing community. Memberships are no longer based on the size of your garden. Now, membership is based on the level of involvement you want. Membership is required for participation at Gardening Matters events. Read more about the intense redesign process!

This is only the beginning. Imagine a day when we save and exchange our own seeds, cooperating with our neighbors and creating local interdependence! Together we will grow, cook, share, and preserve food in our communities. We invite you to join us in making our vision a reality: to create a just, diverse, and sustainable local food system.  

To make memberships accessible to everyone, there are three ways to fulfill membership dues: 

1. Pay in full. You can use any credit or debit card to pay online. Paypal is our processor, but you do NOT need a Paypal account to use a credit or debit card.

2. Pay with a monthly bank account deduction- and save a few dollars!

3. Sign up for a partial workshare. We value volunteer time at $15/hour. If you choose this option, subscribe to our newsletter for volunteer opportunities.
