Signing up as a Producer Member

The GWCC is a “Multi-Stakeholder” Co-operative with Consumer, Producer, and Worker Members.

A fully paid Producer Member owns five (5) $40 membership shares, a value of $200.

Producers may begin with the purchase of only two (2) shares for $80, IF they agree to place 5% of their earnings from, or through, the co-op towards the purchase if the remaining shares, until the full five shares are owned.   (to learn more about how this occurs look to “Pricing” in “Adding and Editing Products”)

We are requesting in our early stages that Producers purchase the full amount of shares if they can.sgnup.2

You will see there are quite a lot of questions in the producer questionnaire , and not all may apply to your particular business. You do not have to fill out all fields , However please read all the questions and fill out all that applies. Remember that you can change the info in section 2 at anytime but Changing the information in section 3 will require re-approval as a producer so it is better to fill it out entirely the first time.  You may notice that “products”, “practices”, and “additional info” show up in both forms, if you wish you can simply copy and paste the text from your section 2 answers to those questions on the section 3 form. you may wish to list your products differently than in the “product types” question, that is up to you.

Now you can login, and your ready to start adding Products!
