    Rob lives in Sydney and I (Craig) lives in Melbourne. Each year we become volunteers who are part of of an alternative bush festival.

    This is one of Australia's oldest festivals. It is an amazing communal experience, with workshops, improvised music and dance, talks and debate, acro-yoga, green and traditional technology, fire twirling, slack lining, open mic, meditations, bush walks, swimming and over 1000 workshops - given by festival goers! more.Everything happens. Everyone is an unpaid volunteer from the ticket gate to the fire crew and first aid tent. This festival is made by the people who are there and not the organisers. I think it is the freest you can possibly be.

    And all set in 400 hectors of bush by a lovely River about 4-6 hours from Melbourne or Sydney. Kind of idyllic. Malee Country (Victoria)

    We - Rob and Craig - are part of one of the largest festival Villages and need help ( working for half days) to get our village ready for the gathering in Easter 2020.

    WE WILL LOOK AFTER YOU! PROMISE! Rob and I are both First Aid Trained and there are extensive safety procedures that we must follow. This includes Personal Protective Equipment. We will also have portable radios for you so you can let us know were you are and we can come find you.

    And - there is no cost as it is a working bee - everything from transport to and from Melbourne and Sydney to food is paid for. We can cook Vegetarian and Vegan (me!) and meat dishes (Rob) - bring your own alcohol though. We are GOOD cooks!

    Working in a natural Australian Bush in the famous Malee Country. There are a lot of kangaroos! And amazing bird life - for those that life Grass Parrots and Cockatoos.

    Most of all being part of a amazing festival and contributing to it in a very real and wonderful way - and if you can come and join Arts Village during the festival itself next Easter!

    Learn new building and landscaping skills and how a (small part) of this festival is organised.

    Start to see what an alternative festival really is about and how people create it. This is called a transaction festival!

The proposed toilets will be of similar construction and similar materials but allow up to ten people per unit. Small design improvements have been made - notably to the pipe system was pre-build and damaged in transit and so leaked.
