SidedWhole Spring Event 
Greetings all. I will be making magic in the community kitchen at the event this year, but I will need your help to do

it.

The menu will adjust to what we have

Thursday night: I will make Beans and Rice 

Friday night: Beef Stew - please bring stew veggies: onions, carrots, celery and potatoes.

Saturday night:  Pasta - feel free to bring anything you would like to go along with that.

For lunches - Sandwich makings, Snacks, muchies, Fruits

Breakfast you will be on your own: Bring Coffee and creamer

Sunday Morning Pancake and Waffle breakfast: We need of pancake mix, butter, syrup, eggs and fruit toppings. 


  • As always finger foods, side dishes, snacks, salads and drinks are always welcome as well as sandwich makings for lunch. 
  • There will be both carnivore and vegetarian dishes available, but if you have specific needs such as vegan or gluten free, please bring those options with you.
  • Volunteer shifts are also available to help out with food prep, cleaning and such. 
  • Please bring you own plates, bowls or utensils pots and pans. Be sure to bring your own blisswear = plates cups, and silverware.
  • You will be responsible for your own dishes, please wash them and take them with you when you are done eating.
  • As most of you know, the kitchen out there is extremely rustic. Washing dishes is a small chore, but if everyone leaves their dishes in the sink, they can get out of control quickly, leaving us unable to our jobs safely and cleanly. 
  • The meals there are an ever changing thing, and whatever you can bring will be turned into magic by someone along the way. Also, the kitchen generates a lot of trash that we are all responsible for helping to take out, so please grab a bag to take with you when you stop by the kitchen to say your farewells. Here is a list of items we could use your help with:
  • Small green propane canisters
  • Aluminum foil 
  • Sugar
  • Coffee - ground  (not instant)
  • Coffee Creamer
  • Fruit toppings
  • Syrup
  • Tomato sauce
  • Canned tomatoes
  • Onion

  • Breads 
  • Lunch meat
  • Cheese
  • Eggs
  • Vegenaise

  • Beverages
  • Pickles
  • Paper Towels
  • If you want it on your pancakes, bring it.
  • Seventh Generation dish soap
  • Side dishes
  • Salads
  • Snacks
  • Cookies

    Anything else that you would love to share!

Volunteer Positions at 3SidedWhole for our Spring Event June 1 2 3 2018

Our entire event is run and staffed by volunteers and the 3SidedWhole community, which has extensive Burning Man and 
other experience as well as producing over 50 festivals on our sacred land. The land is in a land trust for the community, and will never be built on commercially to preserve the
High Desert ecology and energies. The musicians, performers, and caretakers are all non-paid volunteers, and we rely on pre-event donations and gate donations to fund the event expenses and pay 
the yearly taxes and maintenance on the land. Every year the harsh winter conditions in the desert make much cleanup and renewal necessary to continue hosting events!

THIS EVENT has filled the ten 
full-time volunteer slots that earn full passes.  All who have been confirmed as full time volunteers are requested to serve at least ten hours doing shifts at the gate, in the kitchen, and on clean up crews.  You will be given a special wristbandidentifying you as a volunteer and indicated you can be asked to help at any time during the festival when more assistance is needed in those areas, moving gear around, etc.  We are asking that full-time volunteers come to the ranch THURSDAY NIGHT for a 5 pm meeting and help set up the site then and Friday during the day.  if you cant come then, we expect you to stay AFTER the event to help clean up and put the ranch back to pristine conditions.

Many attendees feel so blessed by the energies at the site that they want to contribute to 3SidedWhole with donations even if they have purchased a ticket or are 
full-time volunteer.  We cannot guarantee expenses of any presenters but will seek to make gas money contributions to those traveling here from out of state as we can.  Please consider giving a generous donation onPayPal on our website or at the gate even if you are on the volunteer or presenter list.

If you are have been granted full volunteer status please confirm your intention to follow through on the above conditions with 
an e-mail to drblue@mac.com 

asap, and before next Monday to hold your slot.

MAPS are now available by mail.  please request them from drblue@mac.com or ara.abq@gmail.com (Barbara).   please DO NOT POST the map online, as we restrict access to motivated and confirmed guests you may share it with family or friends who seriously plan on attending the event.  do not try to find us
without a map, every year a few people get lost and wander all weekend in the desert.....the map was recently
updated because the roads have changed, so get one even if you have been here before!

A list of needed resources is on our 3sidedwhole.com page, please help us 
co-create this event by bringing food, water, tools, led lights, solar lights, lasers,  and energies to share!!!!!!
