KITCHEN + DINING
Shares started when the organizers of Rise and Shine’s annual fundraiser agreed to let a team of folks move the event to a zero-waste event. That involved finding 125 place settings for a sit-down dinner. So many people came together and made that possible.
After the word got out, other events started asking to use the library of place settings. Soon the demand was significant and it became obvious a sharing club would help make the stuff more available to the community.
So Transylvania Shares was born.
We consist of a board of directors and a storage building in Brevard, NC. Our goal is to promote reuse and community.
Membership is $30 a year and gives access to most items in the library. Some items require an additional charge.
Joining is a 2-step process. First you visit our online payment page. Then, after you have paid for your membership, you can create an account in our library.
Who can join the Co-op?
Any resident of Transylvania County, upon making an application. People who are not in Transylvania County may join upon making an application and being approved by a vote of the Board.
What are the membership fees?
$30.00 for a year’s membership. However, members are encouraged to contribute a higher amount if possible. However, no matter how much money is contributed, each member will have one vote (one member = one vote; no multiple votes per family or organization)
You can join any time, but all Annual Renewals will be done in March of each year.
Proration of Membership: If you join in the last 3 months of the membership year (December, January, February) you may pay 1/2 price.
Leaving the Co-op.
You can leave the co-op any time by choosing not to renew your annual fee. There are no refunds if you leave mid-year.
