BOOKING YOUR EXPERIENCE: DATE REQUESTS, PRIVATE CLASSES, NO SHOW POLICY, CANCELLATION, ETC, ETC.
Request Your Date
Our "Request Your Date" button works for listings that offer this option. It is to, as it states, request a suitable date. You will also notice the "Host's Notice" once on the listing's Request Page which will also apply: "Please select 3 dates and times that you are interested in. Please note that dates and times provided that are sooner than 72 hours of which we receive your request may involve more back and forth. Thank you very much!"
If you do not see the listing you are looking for to "Request Your Date", please email email@example.com so we can set up something more suitable to your needs. For such reservations, you may contact Seeds Center, NFP (SC) with 3 dates or sets of dates you would like to register for by sending SC a message. This is to ensure that there is space for you that day and also for SC to serve you. If the dates you request are not available, SC will work with you for the best one.
Group and/or Workspace
You are not considered registered until full payment is received and your spot in class is not reserved until then. The exception to this rule is for work space groups or other groups larger than 5 where a 25% non-refundable deposit is required to solidify booking and the other 75% required at latest 72 hours before the day of the event, which both can also be paid together. All payments non-refundable - free rescheduling provided up to 2 times for groups, with a $10 charge for the 3rd reschedule and no reschedules after the 3rd.
-- IF REQUESTING THROUGH A PLATFORM OUTSIDE OUR WEBSITE OR VERLOCAL SOFTWARE (I.E. CourseHorse or Dabble), the above rules for reservation may not have applied to you, but the following APPLIES to ALL STUDENTS:
Reservations for all classes are required 1 full calendar day (24 hrs) in advance, unless SC gives written consent allowing shorter reservation. You can always contact us and we are happy to work with you and your schedule. Any reservations or bookings made after 24 hours even if you have received an automated confirmation may have to be rescheduled and you will be contacted at any phone numbers or emails provided.
If SC cancels a class due to low enrollment or other extenuating circumstances, all participants will be notified to arrange for a credit towards another class.
If you cancel less than 5 calendar days before your scheduled class, SC may not issue any class credit or transfer.
No Show Policy
Instructors are allowed to leave and cancel class after 30 minutes of no students within the teaching space and after this point, there are no refunds.
Sending a Friend in Your Place
You may send a friend in your place in any such circumstance, but it is your responsibility to inform your friend policies applicable to them. This is because we allow you to send someone last minute.
If you need to reschedule your class(es), there is a strict 3 time policy. This means we will not reschedule you after missing 3 classes. Reschedules are only for the same class(es) initially paid for. 24-hour minimum notice is required for any rescheduling due to the nature of how we both prepare for and book for the rent of the class space. We cannot refund after 24 hours leading up to the class time.
SC cannot provide refunds, credits, or class transfers for classes missed as a result of illness, job loss, personal emergencies or events beyond our control. In general, Seeds Center does not provide any refunds.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT? DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING? WHAT ARE MY RESPONSIBILITIES?
SC will provide supplies for the class unless written and stated otherwise. Depending on circumstance, SC may have to substitute supplies based on availability, but rarely will do so.
You are responsible for the following and if the below rules are not followed, SC reserves the right to ask you to leave without refund:
You agree to notify SC 36 hours minimum in advance of any food allergies or dietary restrictions (kosher, vegan, etc., with detailed descriptions of unacceptable foods) via electronic mail to firstname.lastname@example.org; if SC cannot accommodate dietary restrictions or allergies, you will receive a refund or credit to another class;
Dress appropriately and safely for the particular class. In any culinary experience, SC does not allow open-toed shoes, loose clothing, and jewelry and for students with long hair, that hair should be tied back out of the way;
Children are not permitted in classes unless otherwise stated or approved by SC in writing (and must be accompanied in the class by an adult); and
You must notify SC if you have been diagnosed with a contagious illness prior to class and either cancel or reschedule your appointment when doing so. If you knowingly attend under contagious sickness, you will likely be asked to leave, not be allowed to attend classes in the future, and there will be no refund. This is to protect others who would be involved in the class with you.

You and SC agree that the arbitrator(s) shall not have any authority to certify any class arbitration or collective arbitration.

SC authorizes students to take photographs during and at the end of class. These pictures must be for personal use only. For any planned publication, including any social media, the student shall firstly obtain written consent from SC, which reserves the right to refuse such authorization and shall validate each published photo. It is strictly prohibited to film the courses without the prior written consent of SC. Such filming shall also require consent from all the participants and the Instructor in attendance.
