 From 29th of May, before the Festival, we want to invite you to Workcamp, and to volunteer even now! After the Festival, we are also open to people willing to stay with us longer and contribute to the development of the place!

 In today’s times focused on individualism, it is worth returning to the primitive, tribal, community behavior, because, as you know, ‘united we stand!”



 This time the Festival lasts three days from June 12th to 14th. It is possible to arrive earlier. Below you will find more info on this topic! We invite you to Workcamp 2 weeks before the Festival, and to volunteer even earlier.

  • We use composting toilets as well as pit latrines on the Festival grounds.
  • There will be access to solar and passive showers on the Festival grounds, but we cannot guarantee hot water given the amount of Participants. There are also washing stands with a sink.
  • Kids: in plans we will try to arrange classes for a part of the day. Parents are welcome to be a part of this events, all individual ideas are welcome too.
  • Shopping and exchange: you will have an opportunity to buy a wonderful craft, veggie snacks, seeds, seedlings, books and etc. Bring more cash with you to support our exhibitors creating alternative livelihoods! Both sides will benefit!
  • We encourage you to bring things to give away, for sure someone will be happy with them!

* We will appreciate receive BACS payment for ‘prepayment tickets’ to the end of May. That will help us to arrange festival more efficient.

If money is not the best form of exchange for you- there is a volunteering option, but in this case, please join us at least 3 days before the Festival and stay at least 2 days after. In this case, we will conduct Magic Hut (collection for food on a voluntary basis).

Volunteering: come to us for a Workcamp preferably 2 weeks before the Festival! Then you will get to know the area, us, the tasks, and during the event you will most likely coordinate the activities of those who will come to volunteer later. We will try to arrange the work together so that each one of the crew can take part in lectures and workshops. For the Workcamp participants, food and accommodation free of charge!

We ask you not to use any “boosters” during the Festival and to keep sober minds and open hearts for permaculture knowledge and practice: about gardens, alternative education, natural building, renewable energies, passive systems, alternative economics, and many, many other practical things that will support us in growing together and becoming more independent beings! We do not use any narcotic drugs on the Festival grounds, nor do we use any religious or esoteric practices. Here we only deal with the permacultural and practical side of the force!
