Become a member

Support our work! We believe that the first step towards making a difference is to get our hands dirty--literally. Our projects involve hard work. Dirt under our fingernails, heavy boxes of fruit, sunshine on our back type work. By becoming a member, you can help us continue to do this work and make lasting change in our community.

As a LifeCycles member, you help our ongoing efforts to create, educate, and empower our community in the pursuit of a sustainable, inclusive local food system.

How do I become a LifeCycles member?

Our flexible membership model allows anyone who believes in our mission to become a member and show their support. We offer the option for a paid or free membership, with the option to automatically renew.

There are two ways to sign up as a member:

Become a volunteer

As a volunteer, you can become a LifeCycles Member for FREE. If you are an existing volunteer, you will be asked to opt-in as a member the next time you sign into the Gleaning Hub. If you aren’t yet a volunteer, you can register as a volunteer in the Gleaning Hub and opt-in as a member.

(without becoming a volunteer)

We know that not everyone has the time or energy or ability to get involved in the same way. If you do not have the capacity to volunteer at this time, we would love to still offer you a seat at our membership table. Registration is simple: just click the link below and you will be redirected to our membership form.

Why should I become a member?

By becoming a member, you align yourself with LifeCycles’ goals, support our mission, and become part of our movement to create a sustainable, inclusive food future. As a member, you become a voice for our organization and an advocate for a better food system in the community, and you can make real change happen with voting privileges at our annual general meeting. 

Like donations, any membership fees go directly towards funding our projects: Fruit Tree Project, Victoria Seed Library, Growing Schools, Seed the City and the stewardship of Welland Orchard. And for our unpaid members, your support provides the foundation we need to continue enhancing the way folks live and eat in Victoria.
