We want three different groups of volunteers
Preppers / Mycelium
Arrive at least 3 weeks before the festival, these volunteers take full part in the preparation of the land, buildings and magic that turns a desolate land into an amazing festival setting.
The preppers teach participants on the NPF about certain tasks and can after that enjoy the festival free from responsibility. They get training in varied methods depending on their group of volunteering.
Available time to volunteer within: 15 may- 24 July
The Starters / Legumes
Arrive 10 days before the festival, these volunteers come in to make the finishing touches, beautification and changing the area from a work area to a festival and community space.
Starters volunteer 4 hours per day when the NPF has started and have specific tasks based on what needs doing and their skills/longings.
Activaters / Cover crop
Start 2 days before the festival (18th of July), volunteering involves teaching participants how to interact with the environment, showing how everything functions and taking part in what ever needs doing at that time.
This group works 6 hours per day in two shifts.
What we can offer volunteers:
Tenting options in town or at the festival area
