The Vancouver Island Herb Gathering Work Trade program is designed to offer folks a way to engage with the conference for a reduced ticket price in exchange for their assistance with various gathering related tasks.
Work Trade Applicants are required to complete 10 hours of work trade in their designated assignment between Wednesday June 8 and Monday June 13, 2022 in exchange for a ticket price of $97 plus GST.
It is mandatory that Work Trader Applicants be available during the hours of the conference (Friday June 10 to Sunday June 12) as most of the tasks take place during this time period. Set-up tasks will be completed on Wednesday June 8 & Thursday June 9 before the conference opens, and take down tasks will be completed on Monday June 13.
The process for the Work Trade Program is as follows:
1. Work Trader fills out application form on this page.
2. The Gathering Committee aims to responds to applications within 3 days via e-mail.
3. If the application is successful, the Work Trader will be provided with a link to register for the Work Trade Pass and assigned to a designated area.
