Working Membership

Volunteering at the Co-op as a working member is optional, but we encourage everyone to give it a try. Members who work develop relationships with the community, staff, farmers and vendors, and help make the Co-op a better place.

Working members receive all the benefits of membership plus an additional 5% off all purchases.

Every new member is signed up as a working member for the first four months of membership and can immediately take advantage of the 5% discount.

Annual Work Requirement

  • Six hours for each person over age 16 in a household.
  • Any eligible person in your household can fulfill your total hours.
  • When you join, we expect your work hours to be fulfilled within your first four months of membership; please contact the Membership Office if that is an issue for your household.
