Spring Gathering 2022

Covid-19 Update: Our entire event takes place outdoors with a wide range of attendees. We require frequent handwashing and/or sanitization, and that anyone sick or potentially sick stay home. Masking is optional during this event.
It’s time to gather and create once again! We are excited to be hosting our annual spring gathering again, and this time bringing back those bigger old school vibes!
There will be co-creative workshops, drum circles, group meditation, live music, vending, ceremony, community building projects, and much more!*
This gathering is hosted by Sage Valley, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. All proceeds will go into creating the event and growing the projects at Sage Valley, which include our ecovillage and nature school. Donations of time, resources, or monetary energy beyond the suggested donation are strongly encouraged ♥
Suggested donation to camp at this event is on a sliding scale of $33-$111 per adult or family, which can be purchased in advance here: https://medicinetribe.ticketbud.com/sage-valley-spring…, plus an item to donate to Dharma Greens Vegan Kitchen (which provides free meals during the entire event). Day passes are available with a give-what-you-can donation. Children 15 years old and under require no admission donation. Minors must be accompanied by a legal guardian. We do accept alternatives to monetary donations and our list of accepted items can be found here: https://docs.google.com/…/1lXlLmt3BiOfK6FckOlQ8…/edit…
We hope to see you there!
*Music and Workshop Schedule will be updated as we get closer to the gathering.
The gate will officially open at 11 am on Friday, May 20, 2022. Early entry will ONLY be allowed for registered and approved volunteers (see info below about volunteer opportunities). The gate will be closed at 9 pm each night to ensure safety for all and open again at 9 am. No entry into the event will be allowed after 9 pm. DRIVE SLOW when approaching the gate, the road is curvy at the gate entry and on a hill! No one will be allowed to enter without an admission donation or volunter commitment and this can be done in advance or at the gate. Be sure to bring proof of your online donation if you contributed in advance.
The Gathering will be held at Sage Valley, an ecovillage home and non-profit organization. Admission and kitchen donations ensure we are all giving what we can. No profits will be taken from donations. Donations will go back into creating the most magical Gathering we can now and in the future. Hosting a gathering of this magnitude takes resources and funding. Our goal is to provide as much as we can and do it in a sustainable way. Donations can be made online and at the gate. If you find the suggested minimum donation unaffordable, there will be VOLUNTEER opportunities so that you may give back through service rather than monetary giving. We also encourage creative alternative donations for admission. A list of acceptable donation items can be found here: https://docs.google.com/…/1lXlLmt3BiOfK6FckOlQ8…/edit…
IMPORTANT NOTE: Everyone entering the event grounds will need a donation or be a volunteer. Regardless of weather, changes to your schedule, personal choices, sickness, family emergencies or any other reason, all ONLINE DONATIONS ARE FINAL, 100% NON-REFUNDABLE & NON-RETURNABLE. By donating you understand & agree to all the information provided on the donation/ticket website. Tickets are, however, transferable & you are encouraged to gift your ticket if circumstances arise where you cannot make the event. See the sections about Volunteer Opportunities and Donation on the FAQs for more information.
This event suggests a sliding scale admission donation of $33-$111 per person or family. While that entry fee will help make this event happen, any additional donations are joyously WELCOMED! We want to make this gathering as beautiful and healing as possible, but we need your help! Even if you cannot attend the event, you may still donate through the ticket website. If you find yourself in a position of abundance and feel called to share, we will put those funds to good use! In addition, if you wish to sponsor a particular project with materials or monetary contributions so you can directly see the results of your generosity, we will be forever grateful! Here are some projects needing funding: schoolhouse build, booth for gate entry, solar power systems, greenhouse project, feeding the masses with clean vegan whole foods, building a permanent workshop space, building bathhouse, and roofing over family table. If you wish to donate, you may do so on the ticket website by selecting the donate option or by donating at the gate. This event is powered by YOU!
*If you wish to volunteer this year for admission and it is your first time volunteering at Sage Valley, you must be able to arrive Friday for a brief volunteer orientation.* Volunteer opportunities are always available for anyone who cannot afford the suggested minimum admission donation or who feel called to serve. If you are interested in volunteering, please register (link coming soon). Parents with children can volunteer to supervise Kid Village.
If you want to step up and help out during the event but don’t want to register as a volunteer, there will always be ways to get involved!
This is a PRIMITIVE camping event with NO HOOKUPS or electric available. Sage Valley intends to remain off grid. There will be several camping areas designed to meet everyone’s needs and to create an intimate environment. There will be limited car camping available in some pasture areas for people who need or prefer that. There will be a family camping section near Kid Village and facilities for easy access. There will also be forest camping that requires all gear to be hiked in, for those looking for more solitude or rustic experience. RVs and Buses will be allowed in the car camping sections. Please be aware that this is farm pasture terrain.
Come one and come all vendors! We encourage vending of your DIY and homemade crafts, art, services, foods, and more! If you are interested in vending, please register here so that we may plan the space accordingly and have a spot reserved for you:
(link coming soon)
We do ask for a $10 vendor fee. Vending space is first come, first serve. If you register to vend and find that your plans have changed and you are no longer able to attend, please let us know ASAP so that we are able to fill your space with another vendor who may be waiting.
This is primarily a self-regulated event where attendees are expected to speak out and stand up for what is right. Don’t be a jerk, bring good vibes, and always remember that LOVE is the answer. However, appointed Peace Keepers will be available throughout the event to ensure everyone’s safety. They can be found at the Healing Hut. We take care of each other and strive to create a SAFE SPACE for all! Please be sure to respect each other.
We will do everything we can to make this event accessible. There will be parking within walking distance from the main event area. However, the grounds are unfortunately not designed for handicap accessibility. If you have any special needs to be considered, please reach out to the event organizers so that we may try our best to accommodate you. NOTE: The event grounds are typical of Indiana farm terrain. Trails & foot paths are often curvy, rough, grassy & hard to maneuver for some. Therefore we do not consider this land to be accessible for all.
This is a LEAVE-NO-TRACE event! It’s simple: leave the place you visit the same or better than you found it. Pack it in and pack it out. This property is an actual family farm where people live, treat it the way you would want others to treat your own home. If you see others not honoring the LEAVE-NO-TRACE motto, take some time to explain to them why it’s important & nicely ask them to pick up after themselves. Recycling bins will be available, please be sure to use them! We ask that all trash brought onto the land is also carried off of the land. Trash removal costs us money, uses resources, energy, and time. Attendees found disrupting the natural beauty of the event farm will be removed from the grounds without refund, we are serious here folks! LOVE OUR EARTH!
Only biodegradable and earth friendly soaps, cleaners, and chemicals should be used at Sage Valley. Let us all be kind to the delicate ecosystems around us. Harmful chemicals can leach into the water systems surrounding us and create a ripple effect with a big impact.
Cigarette butts should be properly disposed of and never left on the ground. Smoking should be done away from others and outside of any shared community spaces, preferably not past the parking lot/bus&RV camping space.
The main sacred fire should be honored, cared for, and enjoyed with respect. Entry into this space should be mindful. Offerings to the fire are encouraged and permitted items include tobacco or other organic materials. Please do not cook at this fire or burn trash in it – there is a fire in the dining area that can accommodate these needs.
Sage Valley is not responsible for the care and well-being of pets. Pets will be allowed, but please be responsible. Take care of your pets, keep them safe, and don’t bring aggressive dogs. There are farm animals on the property, DO NOT allow pets to disturb the animals who call Sage Valley home. Pets must be up to date on veterinary care, leashed, and cared for at all times.
This Gathering and Sage Valley are very family and kid friendly spaces. There will be a family camping section and Kid Village will have many activities for children. Children age 15 and younger require no admission donation! Please be aware that we encourage freedom of expression within a family-friendly context at this event. All families are different so please keep this in consideration for your own family.
