For Earn or Rent options, we collect 15% of the transaction between landowners and gardeners. By paying this fee, you will be automatically covered by earthworm insurance.
The basic earthworm Share option will always be offered free of charge. If you’d like to support us, you can “Pay What is Fair” or use our affiliate links when purchasing insurance or gardening supplies.
Earthworm is working on a group insurance policy such that whenever a gardener steps onto a landowner’s property, everyone is covered. Stay tuned!
Harmony and trust among the earthworm club is key to our community’s success. earthworm offers guidance for questions to ask and topics to discuss so that club members can begin their relationship with clear expectations. Further, we offer a review feature so community members can publicly share their experiences and opinions of their partners.
Please review earthworm’s standard contracts for renting and sharing to learn about our optional security deposit & arbitration offering. If the users select not to opt into that offering in the beginning of their relationship, earthworm will not be involved in conflict resolution. At that point, it is the sole responsibility of the parties involved to seek remedies per local laws. Our appendix contains some helpful language for gardener and homeowner agreements.
earthworm has prepared guidance on gardening expenses that club members can expect. earthworm also offers recommendations as to who should pay for what. However, these are simply recommendations and all finances and expectations should be thoroughly discussed between club members prior to work beginning.
Sorry about that. Please contact us and we'll see what we can do. Please share earthworm on social media and get the word out about our community. We hope to grow our club in your neighborhood soon!
Unfortunately, we don’t have answers for all the world’s problems. Globalization has altered our food systems and we are offering a solution to re-localize food supplies. Share is a free option for those who want to engage in gardening activities but may otherwise not have the means.
