Please note that these policies extend to programming that we host; we inform those we partner with about our educational goals and values, but each has their own policy; consult with the organization before registering.
Sliding Scale Pricing
We ask that you self identify your ability to support our workshops by consulting the chart below and reflecting honestly on your current financial situation. This chart applies to all our educational programs, our mushroom CSA, and our consulting and speaking services.
TIER 1 prices are intended for those who are lower income or experiencing underemployment, unemployment, or other financial challenges
TIER 2 prices reflect the true costs of the program.
TIER 3 prices are for households with abundant financial resources; your payment helps support others attend our programs.
We recognize that historical injustice has led to an inequitable distribution of wealth and resources. Our personal family history and privilege give us advantages in the world, and we seek ways to support others who have experienced systematic oppression.
If you identify as one of the following, we have special solidarity pricing which lowers the price below the Tier 1 level for courses. Let us know by emailing us at and we will share a code for you to use at checkout.
• People of Color
• First Nations People
• People who identify as LGBTQI
• Refugees and Migrants
Further, as we steward lands that traditionally belonged to the Haudenosaunee people, any members of those tribal nations are invited to attend any of our programs at no cost.
No One Turned Away
The opportunity to learn is a right, not a privilege. We offer workshops to share what we have learned, and to increase the ecological literacy of all people. If you are challenged to attend a workshop given the pricing policies outlined above, we are happy to discuss alternatives. Please be in touch.
Registration and Refunds
When you register, please be committed to attending the course. Get in touch ahead of time with any questions. We are able to refund 100% of your tuition if notified three months before the course starts, 50% if one month, and 25% if two weeks.
Canceling a Course from Low Enrollment
If our course is unable to run due to low enrollment, we will notify you 10 - 14 days in advance. Your tuition can be applied to another offering or we will refund it in full.
