The First Gullah Geechee Herbal Gathering, Fresh Future Farm, Saturday, 14. March 2020

The Gullah Geechee Herbal Gathering is an one day conference geared towards exploring the historical and cultural uses of herbs and plant medicine in the Gullah/Geechee Nation and within the Diaspora. Herbalism in the Gullah Geechee culture has been passed down from generation to generation, and it is our goal to help educate and heal the community with this information. We want to empower the Gullah Geechee community and beyond to further care for themselves and their families with this acquired knowledge. The main goal of this conference is to tap into our local community of Gullah Geechee community based healers (BIPOC) and teachers and give them a platform to share with the community at large, especially the underserved.
The event will consist of 9 workshops, plant walks, nutritious food, and a marketplace of herbal artisan vendors, fun herbal activities, guided movement activities and more. 
The Gullah Geechee Herbal Gathering is intended to provide a day of learning and fellowship for herbal enthusiasts of Color primarily, and the general community at large; to learn from each other, wise teachers, and the plants themselves. We want attendees to get grounded in their herbal practice through education, fellowship, community and nature. This conference not only seeks to educate but to advocate for the conservation and preservation of the Gullah Geechee culture, but the bioregional ecology as well.
Registration begins at 9 am, and the conference will kick off with an opening circle and key note speech around 10 am.  Keep checking for schedule and teacher updates and ways to be a part of this much needed and amazing conference by following us on facebook @gullahgeecheeherbalgathering.
