Crescive Growers Group 

Welcome to The Crescive Growers Group!

These are the Crescive Growers Group terms of use and they apply to all growers utilizing this

platform. By becoming a member to the Crescive Growers Group you agree to these terms and

other policies we post. These terms are a living internal policy that help build and support a safe

and supportive environment for growers to share and build their knowledge and relationship to

growing with nature and with each other.

Your Account - YOU MUST BE AT LEAST 18 YEARS OLD TO BECOME A MEMBER OF THE

CRESCIVE GROWERS GROUP. When you create an account you must provide us with accurate

information. To create an account you must be at least 18 years old.

You are responsible for anything that occurs when anyone is signed in to your account, as well as

the security of the account. Please contact us immediately if you believe your account is

compromised.

Becoming a member - To become a member, simply create an account and read and agree to the

terms of use and pay your annual subscription dues. You will receive an email stating approval and

introductory information about the Crescive Growers Group. There are NO REFUNDS to your

Growers Group membership, however, you may cancel your membership at any time. We attempt

to screen for fraudulent accounts. We require authentic membership accounts only. See

Authenticity. The Crescive Growers Group Forum requires a submission for approval. Once you

submit your request to enter the forum your account will then be reviewed for approval. Once

approved you will have access to the Crescive Growers Group Forum.

Authenticity - You cannot pretend to be or impersonate someone else by using the name, brand or

works of someone else to deceive other growers.

Abusive Conduct - You are responsible for all activity in your account. If you violate our policies we

may terminate your account. Don’t do anything illegal, abusive towards others, or abuses our site

in a technical way.

Be Safe and Respectful - These community guidelines exist to shape and guide Crescive Growers

and the growing community utilizing this platform. This is not about building an arbitrary framework

of “right” and “wrong”. It’s about making the Crescive Growers Group a place where diverse

growers feel excited, supported and happy to exist in this space while still allowing for different

points of view. We are about education and advancement of the regenerative agricultural sciences.

 

Bullying, harassment and threats - We don’t allow bullying, harassment or threats on the Crescive

Growers Group platform because we want our community to be a safe place for growers to exist,

share knowledge and ideas. At the same time, we want growers to be able to express

themselves, be critical constructively and discuss controversial issues. We recognize that

discussing controversial issues can sometimes involve criticism and we believe that is an important

part of free debate. However, we draw the line when it comes to harassing public or private figures

or other community members, or taking any action that affect people’s physical safety.

As much as we want you to be able to express yourself, we want all of our users to have the right

to express their opinion without feeling intimidated. Even the most difficult conversations should

take place in the most respectful way. Here is how we define these behaviors.

Bullying and harassment - You cannot attempt to intimidate anyone either directly or by using your

influence over others. When both sides engage in similar behavior, both accounts are subject to

deletion. If you feel like you are being intimidated please contact us so we can review the

interaction and address the problem as soon as possible.

Threats - Any member of the Crescive Growers Group should be able to express their opinion in a

way that doesn’t threaten another person. In this respect, we take threats of violence very

seriously. Any member threatening the well-being of an individual or group of people will be

removed. This includes threatening behavior such as stalking or inciting others to commit violent

acts. If you are a victim of this behavior and feel that your personal safety is at risk, we suggest

that you contact your local law enforcement, in addition to reporting the issue to us.

Hate speech - The Crescive Growers Group is a global platform which makes us a very inclusive

group. Therefore there is no room on the this platform for hate speech, such as calling for

violence, exclusion or segregation. This includes serious attacks on people based on their race,

ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, sexual orientation, age, disability, or serious medical

conditions.

When reviewing an account for potential hate speech violation, we consider the following:

• Is there a call for violence against someone based on a characteristic such as listed above?

• Does the person glorify a group that is known to support ideologies that would be classified

as hate speech such as listed above?

• Is the person using racial slurs or negative depictions of someone based on a characteristic

like those listed above?

This list is not exhaustive, but we want to be transparent about how we review the grey areas of

speech and action. There can be a fine line between political comments and hate speech. If you

come across what you believe to be hate speech, please report it to us immediately.

Doxing - We take a strong stance against doxing, which is sharing an individuals private information

or aggregating their public information for the purpose of intimidating them through harassment.

We take this strong stance against doxing because it is used to silence or intimidate people with

different viewpoints on the internet. It can cause extensive emotional trauma and can put the

victim’s physical safety at risk.

 

The most classic form of doxing is when an individual’s private personal information is shared. This

could be information such as a phone number or home address. The definition of private personal

information can vary and may mean that it is simply very difficult to find.

We also consider it to be doxing when an individual’s non-private information is aggregated. For

example, we would consider it doxing if someone’s profile picture was combined with their real

name, all of their known social media accounts, and the city they lived in.

No matter the specific information shared, we also evaluate the context around why it was shared.

If it looks like this information is being shared for the purpose of making it easier for a large group

to harass that individual, we are likely to consider it doxing.

When doxing takes place, we lose the ability to have conversations. Doxing isn’t speech

countering speech, it is speech shutting down others’ ability to speak. It removes our ability to

discuss ideas, grow as individuals and have a safe space for disagreement.

Account deletion or cancellation of membership - You can permanently delete your account at any

time by going to our Privacy Policy. On that page you can also see what information is deleted and

what we continue to store after the account is deleted. You can also email us with your

cancellation request at info@crescivesoil.org.

We can terminate or suspend your account at any time at our discretion. We can also cancel any

membership subscriptions and remove any descriptions, posts or benefits at our discretion.

These terms remain in effect even if you no longer have an account.
