Members are the heart of One Straw
With our members, we’re building a strong, connected local food system, that not only protects, but helps to regenerate our natural world.
Proceeds from memberships go right back into supporting you as members and meeting our legislative requirements as a Society – holding Annual General Meetings, producing Annual Reports, coordinating member benefits and events, submissions to the BC Registrar, creating newsletters, etc.
Membership fees do not fund our programs, but because many members join specifically to support this work, many sign up as ongoing supporters with small monthly or larger annual contributions. Find out how here: www.onestraw.ca/donate
By joining, you’re an important part of building a connected, resilient community!
Memberships are valid for one year. All proceeds go towards supporting our programs.
Current membership rates:
Individual | 20$
Family | 30$
Business | 50$
