Enviro-Mental Recycling — Festival Coordinators

This page is for 2023 - please visit this page to apply when this area is open: https://buddhafield.com/join-us-buddhafield-festival

Our Objectives

• To have as much fun as possible.

• To deepen the bonds between the different cultures of our community.

• To practise team cooperation based on negotiation, love and respect. 

• To encourage and enable a spiritual journey of discovery for each member of the crew.

• To respect the ethos of drug abstinence that makes Buddhafield Festival a supportive space for self determination.

Our activities 

The Enviro-Mental crew work as a team to look after Buddhafield's Recycling. It is a chance to practise community cooperation working together with humour to achieve our common purpose. During the festival we collect the recycling and sort it ready for processing. It is a positive opportunity to feel part of something bigger while engaging with the wider Buddhafield community of traders and crew.

The Enviro-Mental Temple is our community art & music space. We run a sound stage offering the artists in our crew the possibility of performing at the festival. We welcome designers, dancers, fire breathers, singers, instrumentalists and DJs. We hold workshops and finish each night with an after hours cinema.

During the set up we decorate The Enviro-Mental Temple and create our glamorous Recycling Stations. Sign painting, furniture building and stage lighting are some of our core activities.

If you're an energetic, conscious eco-warrior, who doesn't mind getting your hands dirty, while mucking in to get the job done then we are the crew for you.

Our Schedule

We all arrive in the afternoon on Sunday the 9th of July. We establish our camp where we can live and work together as a community.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are the days we build our Enviro-Mental Temple and recycle stations. It is our opportunity to be creatively engaged in the formation of the Buddhafield festival site.

Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday are the festival days. Our mission is to swiftly collect the recycling and host the festivities in The Enviro-Mental Temple. Everyone is asked to contribute around two and half hours each day, split between various morning and afternoon activities.

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are the days we celebrate our friendships while we complete our mission of processing the festival's recycling and packing away the Enviro-Mental Temple.

We say our goodbyes and leave early evening on Wednesday the 19th of July.
