Premium Membership.

Your Green Box gets you a year of Roots Down Premium Membership, giving you unlimited access to exclusive events, our Grower Network forum, and our Member Knowledge Center, an ever-growing catalog of research, articles, infographics, and memes. Be the most informed (and funniest) person in your pollinator Facebook Group, drop some knowledge on your friends, or simply connect to other Growers. The Roots Down Forum and Knowledge Base is a great way to grow your ecology and advocacy knowledge.

More than a membership.

All proceeds from your Green Box purchase goes toward building DeKalb's first "Cocktail Garden." With fennel, lemon grass, juniper, and more the Cocktail Garden will be a pocket ecosystem right near the heart of Decatur. Taste some of Independent Distilling's award-winning liquors, or simply have a seat, enjoy the view, and ponder the meaning of existence. The Independent Distilling Cocktail Garden will be the perfect place to see the growing process from start to gin.

Building the Cocktail Garden.

All proceeds from Green Box no. 1 will go to building DeKalb County's first "cocktail garden," a community space for people to relax, taste locally-produced liquor, and learn about the botanicals and plants that contribute to these one-of-a-kind spirits. Garden designed by Thyme To Party.

How does membership help?

While we're a for-profit company, we still rely on the support of members to help us offer pro bono services to communities in food and park deserts, as well as additional support to local governments with smaller budgets.

Plants more landscapes

The single biggest way your membership helps is to provide us with the resources to grow more Productive Urban Landscapes.

Educates more GreenHive Leaders

Your membership also helps us offer scholarships and financial assistance to more young leaders through the GreenHive Leadership Program.

Creates more Growers

Membership help us offer paid internships to up and coming Growers looking to expand into the ecological landscaping industry.

Spreads the word

Every new member helps us tell even more people about the Fruitful Communities initiative.


Growing lasting environmental change.

Since Earth Day 2021, we've reimagined over 130k square feet of lawn, turning ecological dead zones into outdoor classrooms, pollinator gardens, and food forests capable of producing 1000's of pounds of food each year.
