Work Trade

The 2019 Work Trade Application Process is now open!

Work-trading is a great way to contribute to this popular event and to get to know lots of folks while learning/ honing skills related to event facilitation. One of the most appreciated attributes of work traders is flexibility and a willingness to jump in as needed while not being too attached to a particular role or schedule. It is a very big task to coordinate this event and every bit of genuine support and good will is needed to pull it off !!

We have Three types of Work- trade positions:

  • During the event : Feb. 6-10, 20 hrs total, 4 hrs per day (Arrive no later than noon, Feb 5th!)
  • Pre-event on-site ( priority to return WT’s) : Arrival Dates Vary, estimated 25-30 hrs total, to be completed before the event.
  • Post- event on-site (priority to return WT’s): Feb. 11-15th at the latest, estimated 25-30 hours total, to be completed after the event.

This year, we are striving to create a more predictable work- trade system so that it can be easier for everyone involved to plan travel dates and work schedules! So, therefore, we now have a: CUT OFF FOR APPLICATIONS: JAN 5, 2019.

Applications received after that date will be put on a wait-list.

2019 work trade admission fees and deposit:

Regular work trade admission fee: (thru Jan 5) $50 plus tax*

Applications chosen from off of waitlist, if spots are still available: (Received after Jan 5): $65 plus tax*

Refundable deposits of $100 for first time Fl. Earthskills Work Traders will be reinstituted for 2019. This amount is refundable upon completion of work trade responsabilities.

Meals: On-Site Pre and Post event work- traders are provided with breakfast, lunch, and dinner during their time working on-site.

Main Event work-traders receive Breakfast and Dinner, which is provided to all overnight participants during the event.

Dogs/pets, alcohol, illegal substances, and firearms are prohibited at the event. Only Service Animals are permitted by law. Please contact us before the event if you have a service animal and wish to work trade, and see here for expected behavior of Service Animals. Please review our Event Details Page, and adhere to the site agreements which will be provided when you arrive.

HEAD ROLES: We are inviting our community to step into more positions of leadership for Work Trade this year!! As in the past, we have Crew Head role openings for several crews. However, this year we are creating these roles in such a way that you will be more closely in touch with event coordinators, and given the opportunity to really delve into community leadership in a safe and supportive environment. If this an edge you feel ready to push, this is your invitation! Those holding a Crew Head role have their admission fee waived, and can bring a guest for $50 + tax. For more information, please send us an email!

*The sliding scale admission for work traders is designed to cover expenses that are incurred for each person: infrastructure costs, coordinators' time, etc. A sliding scale makes it possible for folks of various means to meet the minimum admission amount, while still allowing those of more means to contribute more. So if you are experiencing financial abundance, please consider paying more than this amount, and, if your circumstances are financially challenging, please inquire about the sliding scale and pay what you are able to afford to help the gathering to be financially sustainable. Please reach out to us to explore this option if necessary. Also, if there are challenges around using Paypal or mailing a check, please let us know.
