Workshops Callout – Deadline 31st January

We’re looking for people to facilitate workshops at the next Scottish Radical Herbal Gathering which will run from 11th-13th May 2018 at Tombreck in Perthshire. The event is being organised by the Scottish Radical Herbal Network – you can find out more about us and the previous events we have organised on our website

We want to support a broad range of workshops, focusing on 3 themes: Radical Health and Herbalism; Sustainability, Social and Environmental Justice; and Scottish Health and Herbal Heritage.
We’d welcome workshop suggestions on any topic, but are also specifically looking for workshop facilitators exploring:

  • Cultural Appropriation & Herbalism
  • Practical Herbal Skills
  • Psycho-emotional health
  • Health inequality
  • Class, Austerity & Health
  • Scottish Herbal Heritage


  • The event will be held on 11th to 13th May 2018, with workshops beginning on Friday afternoon and continuing until Sunday afternoon.
  • The capacity of the Gathering will be 150 people, with 2 to 3 workshops happening simultaneously. Workshop capacity will range from smaller sessions with 10+ people, to larger sessions with up to 50 participants.
  • It will be held at The Big Shed, Tombreck, Lawers, Aberfeldy, Perthshire, PH15 2PB
  • In exchange for facilitating a session, we can offer free entry to the Gathering and free vegan meals. There is no available budget to pay facilitation costs, but we will cover agreed material expenses & travel costs where requested.
  • Accommodation will be mostly camping
