Each resident/member is required to work one hour per day on co-op administration and/or operations. (Capital improvement projects have their own budget for hours and those hours can be exchanged for Class B shares).
Non resident members are required to work 10 hours per month on co-op administration, co-op meetings, farm operations or activities on members weekends.
Hours other than group meetings, work parties or activities must be worked on approved operational and administrative tasks. Tasks get approved by submitting a project page to the wiki, as determined (and recorded) in operational meetings or by a steward determining an immediate need and consulting with the project manager.
Should a member not work the required hours in one month, they will be required to pay $15 per hour for the hours short to the co-op. This is due on the 15th of the following month.
Hours must be recorded monthly and sent to the finance steward no later than the 15th of the following month.
Community labour is intended to be performed in the month required. In special circumstances, a member may request beforehand that their hours be 'banked' for some period of time. This request will be approved (or not) by the steward of a particular project, or by the members if the excess labour is of a general nature.
