In our Urban Farmers Cooperative group we will always take extra precautions to ensure that each Meetup location and activity is safe and enjoyable. Our members graciously open their homes for our events and we do everything possible to make a very positive experience for all. At the same time we must all understand that our activities do have certain risks and everyone participating should also take responsibility and ensure for a safe environment. With any amount of precautions there is still the possibility of injury or accident.
Therefore, in order to protect our members, our presenters, and our organizers we are asking everyone to please read and agree to the waiver as you RSVP- Yes to any of our events.
Waiver: In consideration of being permitted to participate in any way in an Urban Farmers Cooperative Meetup Activity, hereinafter called "Activity", I, for myself, my heirs, personal representatives, or assigns, do hereby release, waive, discharge, and covenant not to sue the Meetup organizers, volunteers, teachers, guides, or Meetup members from liability from any and all claims resulting in personal injury, accidents or illnesses (including death), and property loss arising from, but not limited to, participation in Activity.
Assumption of Risks: Participation in Activity carries with it certain inherent risks that cannot be eliminated regardless of the care taken to avoid injuries. The specific risks vary from one activity to another, and the risks range from 1) minor injuries such as cuts, scratches, bruises, sprains, bites, burns, and food-borne illnesses to 2) major injuries such as cuts, bites, eye injury or loss of sight, joint or back injuries, heart attacks, concussions, burns, and food-borne illnesses, to 3) catastrophic injuries including paralysis and death.
I have read the previous paragraphs and I know, understand, and appreciate these and other risks that are inherent in Activity I hereby assert that my participation is voluntary and that I knowingly assume all such risks.
Indemnification and Hold Harmless: I also agree to INDEMNIFY AND HOLD the Meetup organizers, volunteers, teachers, guides, and Meetup members HARMLESS from any and all claims, actions, suits, procedures, costs, expenses, damages, and liabilities, including attorney’s fees brought as a result of my involvement in Activity and to reimburse them for any such expenses incurred.
Severability: I further expressly agree that the foregoing waiver and assumption of risks agreement is intended to be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the law of the State of California and that if any portion thereof is held invalid, it is agreed that the balance shall, notwithstanding, continue in full legal force and effect.
Acknowledgment of Understanding: I have read this waiver of liability, assumption of risk, and indemnity agreement, fully understand its terms, and understand that I am giving up substantial rights, including my right to sue. I acknowledge that by RSVPing "Yes" to a Meetup, I am agreeing freely and voluntarily to a complete and unconditional release of all liability to the greatest extent allowed by law.
