We invite you to the first of our 2018 smaller city gatherings from the Radical Herbal collective.
You can find info on this page and get tickets through the link below. The day will happen at the Round Chapel Old School Rooms in Clapton, home to many community groups and activities with families, migrant support and more.
We are taking a year off from the main gathering in the field in Shropshire and connecting with radical herbal roots in our cities around the land. Manchester & Bristol gatherings are also planned for later in 2018.
This London gathering will bring together some exciting workshops, people, plants, visions and you all, to share, learn and grow our networks of grounded solidarity: in community herbalism, healthcare activism, land work, mutual aid and the struggles and movements we share in this city of contrasts between collectivism & commons, cooperation & shared resources and systemic inequality, greed, separation & poverty.
It will be a one-day programme of participatory workshops and an opportunity for us to come together and exchange our work, projects, practices, ideas, fury and love!
What we have planned:
– Herbalists Without Borders London group info-sharing & solidarity medicine-making sessions
– Panel of community herbal growing projects around London
– Session exploring cultural appropriation in healing/colonialism/decolonisation in plant medicine/whiteness
– Housing as healthful community – London struggles & movements, uniting powers
– Bringing to view diasporic healing traditions in London from the city’s intercultural communities
We’ll have a plant medicine info stall with fresh foraged seasonal infusions from Wild Brew Crew, bringers of healing herbal teas at demos & protests, and food from Red Moon Roots, local cooking collective who make community meals with food waste.
So come join! and spread the word to all who might be interested to be part of the gathering – the more voices and bodies representing all the dimensions of health, the better equipped we may be to get to the roots of what it means, what the imbalances are for everyone, how to address them.
