Garbologists and Nature Tidiers

  • Location: Curra QLD, Beerwah QLD

The Awakening Festival has a policy of Zero waste and we will strive very heavily to achieve this, but unfortunately not everyone is as passionate about that as us, so we will need people to help us keep the grounds tidy and well kept, and assist others to know what should be put where, ie recycle, compostable, trash etc. The people will also be in charge of making sure that people don't run out of some of life's essentials like toilet paper.
