Spiral Living Center relies on financial help from our community members and donors. We are now offering a recurring monthly membership through PATREON* that enables us to have a reciprocal relationship with our patrons!
What does your membership support?
While our intention is to be a physical resource that folks can access to learn practical and tangible skills, we also feel that online content helps make our work more accessible during this time. Your donations will be evenly distributed throughout our organization to directly help:
- Fund the 2021 Expansion of our IV Gleaning Project
- Help with start-up costs to our new Earth Scouts! Program
- Update our Book + Tool libraries and fund much needed repairs to existing items
- The creation of more online programs and videos for distance community
- Fund fair labor costs for our SLC staff, contractors, and class instructors
- Cover SLC overhead fees for our: office space, computers, and phone.
- Keep our free options available for all who need them. This includes our “Scouts Seat” work-trade position (one per class/gathering).
What do members receive in exchange for their financial support?
We at SLC have many insights and talents to share! One of the most valuable experiences for us has been the journey of finding right relationship with the environment that we are inextricably woven. We are passionate about being homesteaders and stewards of the Illinois Valley, and sharing knowledge specific to this area. We anticipate creating educational videos and downloadable PDF guides sharing food + herbal medicine recipes, gardening tips, animal husbandry tips, off-grid living tips, crafts, repair instructions, & more!
- $10 off all Spiral Living Center in-person workshops
