How to join/get involved
The membership fee for 2017/18 is £52 (£1 a week). Our membership year runs from December to November. If you join during the year, you are asked to pay the full membership fee until 31st August and after 1st September the membership fee is £26. Members can be workshare members who commit to working on average 4 hours a week for 45 weeks (180 hours a year), and get a cropshare bag of veg every week from July 20th to March 31st, or volunteer members who come and work when they have time and take some veg when they have done some work, or cropshare members. Cropshare members pay £32 a month for 9 months (this includes the £52 membership fee) and get a cropshare bag of veg every week from July 20th to March 31st. Cropshare and workshare members need to come and collect their cropshare from the field near Burnopfield.
We work in the field or walled garden every Monday and Friday from 10.30 – 5pm and can arrange to support members coming at other times. Gibside pub is open on Friday evenings, so there is a chance to chat and meet other members socially.
