◇ Four Springs is approximately 85 miles from San Francisco, just north of the Napa Valley region, near Middletown, CA. The drive from San Francisco, Oakland, or Sacramento airports are each about 2.5 hours by car from Four Springs. If you are flying into San Francisco, your flight will need to arrive by 12:00pm in order to arrive at the site on time – this allows for any delays, luggage, rental car pick-up and any stops along the way.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT ARE THE ACCOMMODATIONS LIKE AT THE WORKSHOP?

We handpick our venue sites for comfort, accessibility, and a concentration on the natural beauty around us. Each site is different. Most sites do offer separate rooms for staff, shared with several other staff, but in some cases staff is required to sleep on floor mats. We put a lot of thought and effort into making sure each staff is as comfortable and well-resourced as possible, asking for sleeping preferences before the workshop.  An on-site event manager is there to see to any concerns that come up.  If you have questions about your specific event, please contact our Client Care Specialist to ask for more details about the site and event you’re staffing at.

WHAT IS THE FOOD LIKE AT THE WORKSHOP?

We have an on-site chef present to cook healthy meals for all participants, who attempts to cook with as much organic, natural food as possible.  We ask for any food allergies or restrictions in the questionnaire, and we can accommodate most needs, including dairy-free, gluten-free and vegetarian. Please let us know if you have any dietary restrictions or concerns, and we will do all that we can to accommodate those needs.  In the rare case that we are not able to, we’ll make sure to communicate that beforehand and provide space for you in the refrigerators on site.

can i do this workshop with a friend or relative?

Yes absolutely! Many people choose to staff the workshop of a close friend or family member, and it’s a very bonding experience. We encourage you to invite anyone who you are close to, and who might also benefit from the weekend.

What if i can’t get there in time, or have to leave early?

You cannot staff unless you can be present for the entirety of staffing. If a conflict comes up that would make it so that you cannot be present the entire time, please consult the cancellation policy, and contact our Client Care Specialist immediately.

What is the policy if i need to transfer or cancel?

Please refer to our cancellation policy for more information on this, and contact our Client Care Specialist if you need to discuss a transfer.
