You don’t have to be a member to buy dry goods from the co-op, but joining our membership benefits both you and the co-operative. Membership costs $20 for one year or $10 if you join in semester 2 and the year begins on March 1st. Membership cards are available if you come into the shop. These can be used to access reciprocal membership benefits at other food co-operatives in Sydney.
Members receive the following benefits:
- 20% discount off the price of dry goods;
- Member prices for events held by the co op such as workshops; and
- An opportunity to volunteer in the shop.
In the past, we used to have a system of mandatory volunteer hours for each member but now instead ask our members to volunteer their time based on a different system. We now ask that volunteers come forward, well, more voluntarily.
