Environmental Recycling — Festival Volunteers

Welcome to the Buddhafield Environmental Recycling Crew

Each year we assemble a team of people, who come together to participate in an enhanced Buddhafield experience with a focus on community, team cooperation and recycling.

This year we have two Buddhafield festivals back to back giving us two recycling crew opportunities.

  • The Setup Crew will cover the Weekend festival arriving Monday the 4th and leaving Monday the 12th of July. They will build our base camp and glamorous recycle stations. It is an opportunity for artists to be creatively engaged in the formation of the Buddhafield festival site.

  • The Tat Down Crew will cover the main festival arriving Tuesday 13th and leaving no later than Friday the 23rd July. Tat down are the days we celebrate new friendships while we complete our mission of sorting, packing and transporting our recycling to the council depot.

You can decide if you would like to crew for both festivals or just do one or the other.

During the festival days we meet twice a day and do our thing as swiftly as we can! This will be around two hours in the morning and an hour in the afternoon.

Breakfast, lunch and dinner is provided everyday along with unlimited tea, coffee, love and wellbeing.

Group meditation and dharma input is available for those who wish to participate.

Crew wristbands, car park and live-in vehicle passes are all provided.

If you are an energetic, conscious eco-warrior, who doesn't mind getting your hands dirty, while mucking in as part of a team to get the job done, then we are the crew for you!

Recycling volunteers need to be in good physical health. The activities involve lots of bending, lifting and walking, often energetically, and often carrying heavy bags.

#### Message about 2021 Festival Volunteering

Buddhafield is working closely with the local licensing authority to make sure our two events, Buddhafield Festival and Buddhafield Weekender, can go ahead safely. We expect that certain restrictions will be in place in order for these events to go ahead.

Before you apply for a volunteering position, we ask that you consider whether you will be comfortable following whatever restrictions are in place as per current government guidelines at the time of the events. This could include, but is not limited to, extra handwashing, social distancing, face masks, no snack provision and extra rules around mealtimes etc.

If you will find this difficult then this year might not be the year for you and we look forward to having you back as a volunteer when we no longer need to follow these restrictions.

#### A Word about Alcohol and Drugs

Please have a think about our view on alcohol and recreational drugs, as described on the Festival overview page.

We don’t wish to judge people’s views on this — and hope it won’t put you off applying! And if this would be a new way of experiencing a festival for you then why not give it a try?! However please bear in mind that if you choose to work with us and are accepted, then we’d expect this policy to be respected.
