Are you are on a budget but still want to help support Rural Roots and receive discounts on great UI and Rural Roots classes?

This membership is for you, whether you are a student just starting out, a senior living lightly, a person saving for their own small farm, or anyone who needs to budget their funds carefully. We don’t want anyone to be left out due to affordability. With this membership, you get all the same benefits as the Friends of Farmers membership at around half the price.

Since Rural Roots is a nonprofit run solely by volunteers, that means 100% of your memberships goes to support Rural Roots and its mission of education. Zero percent goes to providing the board with singing guinea hens, rainforest tomatoes, or ecologically sourced cat sweaters made from recycled chewing gum and repurposed water bottles.

FRIENDS OF FARMERS MEMBERSHIP

Once in person classes return, you will have the opportunity to get together with other people and find fellow growers and maker! Your money helps us put on these fun seminars and classes.

Since all of us at Rural Roots are volunteers, you can be assured that all your membership funds are going to supporting Rural Roots and our mission of education. None of your funds are going to support our winter habit of buying exotic garden seeds, starting them too early indoors, and filling up the living room with 2 foot seedlings; while denying that we have a ‘plant’ problem.
