Salmagundi aims towards co-creation. She is structured by 7 main groups:
- Core Staff
- Team Leaders

The founders of the group are responsible for the final decision making proces. They aim to integrate the principles in their work. Feedback from community members in various forms is a main key to inspiring harmonious choices.

During gatherings the team leaders coordinate co-creators. Teams include Cooking Food, Serving Food, Dishwashing, Buildup, Build down, Cleaning, Space Holders, Bar, Decoration. Additional teams can be created depending on the circumstances and the nature of the event. Team Leaders communicate regularly and directly with core staff or the founders.
