Become a 6BC Member
Becoming a member of the garden is one of the best ways you can support our work.
Although anyone can work in the garden as a volunteer, 6BC members have special responsibilities as stewards of this urban greenspace. The most important is to
- act as the garden's monitor during scheduled open hours (at least twice a year)
Members are also required to
- attend garden meetings (usually monthly in the summer)
- take part in work days and contribute to the maintenance/administration of the garden
- pay annual dues ($25)
The main member benefit is personal access to the garden. Once you have completed the membership prerequisites, you will receive a garden key so that you can visit and work in the garden on your own schedule.
This access will be revoked if you don't continue to fulfill your responsibilities.
Once you decide to become a 6BC Member, here's what you need to do:
- Sign up for the 6BC Member Google Group to familiarize yourself with garden work and issues (You'll get all posts by email. Mention your interest in becoming a member when you apply.)
- participate in at least one work day (see 6BC Garden News [left column]for dates)
- attend an orientation session (see 6BC Garden News [left column]for dates)
- pay annual dues of $25 (at orientation)
- sign up to work open hours (at orientation)
