However, for all of that to come together more volunteers are needed.

In a Facebook post, organizing contributor Atomique Productions said it was “desperately” seeking volunteers who could help “create a zero-waste event alongside the green team.”

Volunteers are needed for a couple hours at at time between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Sunday, June 16.

Anyone interested can email team@atomiqueproductions.com (dance party, music and treats included).
