How to become a member:
Come and find out more about us at one of our monthly meetings. When you attend your first meeting, you will be allocated a partner who will fill you in on the background of the project, and help answer any questions you may have.
After attending at least three meetings, you may then apply to join our group by filling out an application form. Once you become a member you will have full decision making rights. The membership will be provisional for the first 6 months.
By participating in our regular monthly gatherings, workshops (such as non-violent communication and consensus decision-making training) and social events throughout the year, you get to know us and we get to know you. We believe in shared responsibility and everyone contributing what they can.
At this stage in the project there is a lot of groundwork to be accomplished - finding a suitable site, researching legal structures, attracting new members, looking for funding, amongst many other tasks. We are currently spending at least 3 hours a week on this (excluding meeting times), and would expect that new full members would be able to offer the same commitment. This may be varied in future.
