There are two helper (work-trader) teams: the kitchen team and camp team.
The camp team is divided into 3 small crews: “Chalutz" - Preparation crew, Setting & dismantlingcrew and Camp crew.
The team is in charge of the cooking and serving of meals and the cleanliness and order of the kitchen.
Each Helper prepares one meal a day (4-5 hours of work per day, some of which is at the expense of workshops).
The kitchen staff will serve the first meal on Tuesday evening and last meal on Saturday afternoon.
Breakfast shift begins at 5:30 and ends at 9:30 when the kitchen is nice and clean.
Dinner shift starts at 15:00 and ends at 20:00, when the kitchen is clean and creature-proof for the night..
Breakfast shift will allow more workshop time, we expect flexibility and consideration of each other needs.
On Tuesday and Saturday we will all work together on kitchen setup/breakdown and preparing meal (Therefor we wont participate in Saturday's workshops)
The kitchen team is to arrive on Monday (March 20th) no later than 18:00 and will set up the kitchen area, and leave after dismantling the kitchen area on Saturday after serving lunch.
Please note that some of the work takes place parallel to the workshops.
We ask the kitchen crew to give special attention to personal hygiene so we can all have a joyful and healthy time. Thank you!
Please accept with understanding that we are still learning, so there might be changes or additions to being on the kitchen team.
1. “Chalutz" - Preparation crew
Prior to the gathering, the “Chalutz” crew is to come to the farm for 3 days March 16th-18th (Thursday-Saturday). Tasks will include the building of structures, preparing of infrastructure and getting everything ready. This crew will work 3 intensive days before the gathering and will therefore be free during the gathering.
2. Setting & dismantling crew
As the name suggests - this crew will work at 2 different times:
Setting - Sunday, March 19th, 6:00 pm to Tuesday March 21st noon
Dismantling - Saturday, March 25th, afternoon to Sunday, March 26nd, evening.
This crew is obligation free during the gathering.
Tasks: setting up camp (workshops compounds, kitchen, bathroom, showers, etc), and KAMOI - Leaving the space better than we found it.
During the gathering this crew is generally free of duties, except unexpected need of help to the camp crew (such rain or wind).
3. Camp crew
Camp crew will arrive on Monday, March 20th, by 19:00 and will finish at the end of the gathering on saturday.
This crew will take care of the upkeep of the camp during the gathering.
Responsibilities: Cleaning and emptying the compost toilets every day, cutting and splitting
wood and anything else needed to make sure all goes smoothly.
It is crucial that people in this crew will be proactive, have the flexibility, openness and wits to see what needs to be done and tend to it, even at the expense of workshops.
Are you up for it?
