HOW CORNERSTONE WORKS
Everyone needs Access to the FarmHUB!
We are a membership based Coop not a retail nursery or garden store. Anyone can join at whatever level of membership they want, From the One-drop, One time drop in to the Annual and Perennial Membership by becoming a member you will be able to purchase any of the products we carry at great prices as we often buy in bulk for division at the FarmHUB, All members can participate in our soil program which gives you exclusive access to BIO365 soils, fresh brewed compost teas and customized soil conditioners. As a member you can dive into discussions and get all your answers to the steps and techniques in growing more in the city!
SO we are a coop, meaning any one working and participating at Cornerstone is a member.

It will take 5-7 business days to process your application and get you set up as a HUB member. Once we open the nursery and store we will then take your payment information and you can change your type of membership at that time as well.

We are community built and want to see you thrive, based on your application and your mission we will adjust the application fee to make it work for you.
Products: The Coop is divided up into five main areas in which we source from the highest quality available for our members.
In Store Consultations: Schedule a appointment at the DIRT Bar, where we can get into the nuances of growing and issues you are facing, problem solving and understanding soil tests, pest problems and crop issues. These are 30-45 min sessions that you sign up for in advance. We are talking about growing apples not fixing them.
