We're dedicated to making membership accessible.
Three options for yearly Supporter Co-op Membership fees means
you can support Fireweed in a way that makes sense for you.
If any membership fees are not accessible for you, let us know,
and we are glad to come up with an option that works.

Our Co-operative Principles
Fireweed Food Co-op is a multi-stakeholder co-op, meaning that, unlike other co-ops (such as worker
co-ops or buyer co-ops) we are a business that takes into account the needs of two kinds of members-- producers and consumers of local food.
Combining both these groups and their needs together in a single co-op creates an opportunity for more cross pollination of ideas as well as creative and collaborative problem solving. It also means that at the leadership level, our board of directors is comprised of both types of members, ensuring a diverse representation in each sector's interest.
Like all co-ops, we run on democratic member participation, which means as a member you are entitled to vote to elect board members and make by-law changes, and run as a board member yourself at our Annual General Meeting in the fall.
We also uphold the 7
Voluntary and open membership
Democratic member control
Member economic participation
Autonomy and independence
Education, training, and information
Cooperation among co-operatives
Concern for community
