This isn't a festival it's a party.
SGP started as 500 friends gathering at the bottom of a garden.
We have never exposed our guests to sponsorship, advertising, brand activations or VIP areas. We have never given PR companies or such free tickets for their celeb clients. Why? because we might be more than 500 now, but like the garden, the ethos remains the same.
This is your party not anyone else’s.
With the following adapted code we hope to keep it that way:
Decide your own life, don't let another person run or rule you.
Behave honourably at all times and respect the local law and officials.
Do not take advantage of someone who is in a vulnerable situation.
Do not allow yourself to become a stupid drunk and set a bad example for the treatment of other Gardeners.
Always respect nature; do not leave rubbish where you are playing.
You are in a community, pitch in and help.
Try to stay clean.
If you haven't come to learn, come to teach.
When traveling, take your trip respectfully, take no personal chances & cause no problems.
Do not allow other Gardeners to harm anyone, expose all abusers to authorities. People who intentionally cause harm to others are the worst people to infest any society.
Help all who are lost, and try to induce them to return home.
Look after your fellow Gardeners whenever and wherever needed, you may need their help someday.
This is a Serious Party.
