Before you apply to join LETS Grow Free, please read the About Us section on this website.
LETS Grow Free works best as a localised exchange so that members can meet regularly to trade, socialise and listen to guest speakers, attend workshops etc We have a growing number of localised exchanges including LETS Grow Free Hunter Valley, LETS Grow Free Bundaberg, LETS Grow Free Mildura, LETS Grow Free Bega Valley.
There are 3 different options for you to choose from to join us:
Option 1. Start your own LETS Grow Free Community Exchange by gathering at least thirty interested people together from your local area, plus a willing co-ordinator and a handful of helpers. Then email us at GrowFreeAus@proton.me and tell us about your amazing community! If you are having difficulty reaching a minimum of thirty people in your area, please email us as we may be able to help.
Option 2. You can join an existing LETS Grow Free Community Exchange if one is already established in your local area. See video below showing existing community groups; Grow Free Bundaberg, Grow Free Hunter Valley, Grow Free Mildura, Grow Free Bega Valley.
Option 3. Join independently, and you will be placed onto the LETS Grow Free Australia community exchange. You can still trade and access all of the goods and services on the exchange like every other member, but local markets, bulk buys, low cost medicinals etc may not yet be established in your area. Eventually, with your help, a local community will grow in your area, at which time we will transfer your membership to that localised Community Exchange so that you can experience the full benefits of LETS Grow Free.
However you choose to join, we look forward to having you as part of our community! This short, 5 minute zoom recording shows you step-by-step how to register for Option 2 and Option 3.
