Sacred Spaces Sign-Up

This year, we are collaboratively creating Sacred Spaces. We have secured locations, identified themes, and planned a process for setting up and tending spaces. Now, we are seeking community members who interested in helping to co-create these spaces located in Amherst, Easthampton, Greenfield and Northampton.

In the form below, you can sign up for any these roles:

  • Set Up Crew
    We need six volunteers to join us on Set Up Day: Sunday, August 29, from 11 to 1 pm. Set Up Crew volunteers will help us put stakes in the ground, collaborate on some landscaping and space shaping. This role may require some lifting.
  • Beautification Crew
    We need three volunteers to help make the spaces look *sacred*. We need volunteers to bring tablecloths, flowers, stones, poems, potted plants—bring it on! Please note: Beautification Crew volunteers must be able to attend Set up Day on Sunday, Aug 29, 11-1pm.
  • Tending Crew
    We need eight volunteers to maintain the Sacred Spaces (two for each site) so they look tidy, well-loved, welcoming, and safe. Volunteers need to visit the sites once a week (September 1-October 2) to change the water in the flower vases, fix wind-blown corners, and keep the space cozy!
  • Structure Crew
    We need three volunteers to think about what people might need in each space and provide objects for people to pray, lounge, lie, offer, and feel into this holy time. Please note: Structure Crew volunteers must be able to attend Set up Day on Sunday, Aug 29, 11-1pm.
  • Break Down Crew
    We need six volunteers to disassemble the Sacred Spaces on Sunday, October 3, from 11 to 1 pm. Volunteers will need to break down the sites, redistribute unclaimed materials to thrift store, people who want them, etc. This role will require some lifting.
