Are you interested in exploring membership in Blueberry Commons? We would like to hear from you! At this point in our development, we are looking for folks who have the time and energy to commit to planning and developing our co-housing project. Membership comes with the expectation of two monthly meetings and additional committee work beyond that.
We offer a multi-staged membership process that enables you to get to know current members and the vision of the project before joining. It also gives us the opportunity to get to know you and to ensure that there is a good fit with the needs and the vision of the cooperative.
The first step in the membership process is completing and sending back to us a “New Member Application.” Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the application. After receiving your completed application, we send you some materials to review and you are invited to come and observe 1-3 meetings. Following that observation period we set up a time for an interview with you. After the interview, candidates attend a minimum of 6 meetings or community events before being considered for full membership.
The overall process can be completed in 2-3 months but may also proceed at a slower rate if desired. We would be happy to provide you with more details about our new member policy and process at your request.
There are also other ways to get involved!
We have regular work bees at the farm which bring together many hands to join in the many projects that lay in waiting on the land. All are welcome to join in these fun community building days!
Stay tuned for additional events, workshops and gatherings at Blueberry Commons.
