It's our commitment to not only be frendly to ourselves, our communities, but to the World that we all share. This means taking an eco-frendly approach to the magic we create at the Frendly Gathering.
While it is an ambitious goal for the festival to be completely impact free, we believe that by working together, and staying true to our Frendly values, we can work to keep the festivals impact as low as possible and continue to lessen our impact year after year.
Our greening initiative is collaboration amongst the Frendly Crew, artists, vendors, attendees and the Timber Ridge community. If we all work together, we can keep Timber Ridge a clean and beautiful environment for everyone to enjoy throughout the weekend!
