There are three categories of Membership: Full members, Associate members, and Friends. To become a member of FSPM, you need to choose a category of membership (please see the Membership page for details) and request an application form from the Membership secretary by sending an email to foundationsacredplantmedicine@gmail.com, or by downloading an application form from the Membership page of this website. You will then need to fill out the application form and return it to the Membership secretary, either by post or email, along with the required additional documentation, if applicable (as specified on the application form).

Once your application has been approved, you will need to pay the appropriate annual fee, which can be paid either online via this website or by a bank transfer, or by cheque. Once your membership fee has been received, you will receive confirmation of FSPM membership via email.

If you would like to join as a Friend, you can pay your annual membership fee directly via this website, on the Membership page, no need to request an application form.

For the list of Benefits of Membership within each Membership category, please read Question 5 below.
