WHO ARE WE?

Crops not shops is a radical grassroots freedom movement visioning a better world into action through building land-based community networks, growing and remembering who we are and our place on earth as guardians of this sacred land.

WE ARE EVERYTHING AND WHAT WE DO TO EVERYTHING, WE DO TO OURSELVES...AND WHAT WE FOCUS ON IN THE WORLD IS WHAT WE CREATE!


WHY WE ARE DOING THIS?

The world is changing and it's up to us to change it for the better. We can do this by building resilient communities in both rural and urban areas. We want to open up a space for people to gather and see how easy and beautiful it is when we work together for the common good of all.

This isn't just a festival, It's a SACRED REMEMBERING; an invitation to change the world by getting back in touch with ourselves and the Earth by coming together in the scared dance of life.

We love to bridge the worlds through this transition of great change and hope to advocate the connections needed to regenerate the earth. We want people to reconnect to themselves, each other and to our old ways of living.

DECORATION

Our gathering will be beautifully decorated with living land art which is a key part of keeping our events sustainable and regenerative. We must leave the land better everywhere we go. LEAVE NO TRACE
Art is the communication of the soul, in-line with the ethos of regenerative agriculture, we have invited artists to showcase the β€˜positive impact examples’ of art that leaves the land better than before, delighting the senses using materials of the earth to enhance the beauty of the land and the sacred event being held.

CROPS NOT SHOPS CAFE

We will be nourishing your souls and taste buds all weekend, with sacred Cacao, wood fired hemp pizzas, raw medicine foods and hearty warm stews, among many others.
Everything we do considers the people, animals and planet around us. That's why it is so important that we shop local, grow fresh, organic food and support our surrounding communities.

THE MYSTIC VILLAGE HEALING SANCTUARY

The Mystic Village is a Sacred Healing space rooted in authenticity and depth. It is a space for our inner children and teenagers to play and be seen. It is a space to dance with our shadows and see them for what they truly are. It is a space for creativity, life force and flow to be liberated and unleashed. You can arrive here to rest and rejuvenate your entire system. Slow down and let yourself be held. Come and remember who you are when all the masks fall away. All parts of you are truly welcome.
We love the way of the peaceful warriors and know that when we dwell in perfect unity, love for all life and all our relations through faith and pro-action, we can literally move mountains.
