What do you think - ‘Seeding Ground’ - A community gathering to share entheogenic seeds, plants and botanical knowledge
RonnySimulacrum posted a topic in News & Notices‘Seeding Ground’ - A community gathering to share entheogenic seeds, plants and botanical knowledge. This is a small survey to gauge interest for an Entheo camp-out or weekend away over the regular Entheogenesis Australis (EGA) event weekend in December later this year. EGA generally takes place in the first full weekend in December. However, it’s not on every year and certainly not on this year or next year. We're proposing a botanical community camp out on the same weekend on the years the large-scale EGA is not on and also building on the old SAB plant meets, camp outs (and recent tribute weekend for Andy) The ‘Seeding Ground’ gathering would be focused on fostering local psychedelic talent and bringing the community together, and return the attention to botanical based discussion and knowledge sharing. It would be a DIY BYO style event where you can camp out, bring food and snacks for mind and body to share with others, and enjoy the weekend with friends and like-minded people without too much formal activities. We know affordability is an issue, So our hope is to still gather in a much more affordable and low-key manner geared towards community and plant sharing in a space where participants can all camp, share plants, food, and bring any strange and wonderful art structures themselves and participate how they wish and help activate the space. The gathering would not be trying to be a serious conference style event (Like EGA) or a Party but focus more around connection and sharing. Current thoughts for the cost of the event would consist of camping and site fees estimated to be around $55, and a per-person registration donation of approximately $30 towards common area shared setup and equipment and running costs an a small amount of food for the light banquet. People could also use the onsite cabin facilities if they want something a little more comfortable at an extra cost. The camping fee gives you access to all the onsite facilities (eg. water, hot showers, some cooking facilities, a pool and waste management) and keep the setup and work needed down to a minimum. If by chance there were any remaining funds, they would simply roll on to the next year's camping event. Then on an EGA year, it will be the Psychedelic Symposium. We hope people will continue to show their support for our special home-grown conference and come along to the much bigger production and large-scale conference event. Please use the survey to let us know your thoughts, as we will need to get the ball rolling now if we wish to make this happen this year or next. If you like what’s proposed here and wish to help out not just attend, please PM and Me. As the EGA team could do with a little rest and I love the help of SAB head to make this one come to life.
