Fall 2019 Family Memberships for Facilitating Families

Our first concern is having a beneficial culture fit between families in our learning circle. We offer facilitation by our existing families the first month, to ensure mutual fit and understanding of the type of modules and facilitation that are held at HGEC.  During planning phase the facilitating group decides on the timing, method and process of how to split the costs for guest facilitators and any associated material costs for various modules through the semester.  This membership model has no lump sum dues.   Families provide payment as the modules are scheduled and as needed to secure external commitments.


Fall 2019 Membership Dues* for Non-Facilitating** Families

Our first concern is having a beneficial culture fit between families in our learning circle. Then we offer a complementary 1-month trial to ensure this mutual fit.  Thereafter, $1,000 membership dues are payable for the T/Th. Fall 2019 semester.

1. *Please see HGEC Founder if cost is a hindrance to your participation.  Family memberships cover 2-learners (aged 7+) per family.

2.*”Non-facilitating” is where the parent does not facilitate due to variety of reasons, including caring for their young children, work schedules, or other life happenings.

  • Facility Access & Spaces: Full Kitchen, Community Garden, Woodshop, Fine Arts Studio, Community hangout space, Library Nook, (we’re open to other ideas)...
