Call for Community

Join us in the Heart

The Spirit Weavers Gathering is a community-created gathering. One of the main ways to become involved and have your knowledge and perspective represented in our cooperative process is to jump in and help produce this event.

Everyone has unique skills and gifts they have developed on their journey. The Spirit Weavers Gathering provides us all the opportunity to step forward and offer those abilities as a gift to our siblings on their path. We are looking for amazing beings who feel called to become more involved in the heart of this gathering.

If you are feeling that call, please read through this document detailing responsibilities and coverage needed in each area. If one of the open positions speaks to you, please fill out the application below.  You will receive a ticket to the gathering in exchange for your offerings. Some positions will offer a ticket to both sessions of the gathering, and some positions have potential to shift into paid positions depending upon the work.  Since we
 receive multiple applications for most positions,  a video call interview may be requested to determine if you are a good fit for the role.  


Event Cook (1 position open)

Come work with the Spirit Weavers Nourishment Team


This is a FUN and demanding paid work position. We cook for 800 people twice daily, with a lunch served to 200 staff and volunteers. As kitchen staff, you must be able and willing to stand on your feet for 8-12 hours a day, lift 25-50# multiple times daily and maintain food safety at all times- all while having a sense of urgency, timeliness and ability to effectively communicate. This is a tight knit loving team that thrives on a positive work environment and engaging meaningfully as a collective. While we hope you are able to enjoy various aspects of the gathering through classes or workshops, this job is for those who are there to work first and foremost as food is a key and integral part of this gathering.

To Apply:

You must have culinary training and/or have cooked for groups 200+. Submit your resume, a cover letter and three work references to include which sessions you are interested in and what kind of time commitment you can make in your cover letter.


Your points of communication: You work directly with the Head Chef: Casandra Kelly + team. You will communicate with and help lead a team of work trade volunteers during your shifts.

Pre-gathering work: Meetings with Casandra + team via google meets for interview and to go over work flow before the gathering. Arrive prior to the gathering to set up the kitchen & prep for the coming weeks.

During the gathering: Kitchen staff arrive early and are expected to stay and work throughout the duration of the session (Sun, moon or both). Work shifts are 8-10 hours/day, and most kitchen staff work 7-9 shifts per session. You must commit to at least 1 full week (7days) per session. Commitment to both sessions is 14+ days, and will include 1.5 days off between sessions.

Post- gathering: A deep clean and winterization of the kitchen happens on the final day of the second session and for the entire following day. Kitchen staff stay onsite to help volunteers properly clean and close up the kitchen.

Exchange: This is a 1099/W 9 Independent Contract position paid by Spirit Weavers Gathering at a determined hourly rate. You will also have entry to both sessions of the gathering, including all meals, and a tent camping spot in kitchen camp.
