The 3rd Annual Gullah Geechee Herbal Gathering March 26- 27, 2022
We are now accepting workshop proposals until Dec. 1, 2021 for the 3rd annual Gullah Geechee Herbal Gathering on John's Island, SC. The Gullah Geechee Herbal Gathering provides an herbal education and opportunities for personal and community transformation through the preservation of Gullah Geechee and traditional African culture through herbal traditions.

We are seeking a wide range of herbal and earth centered topics (farming and growing, wildcrafting ,application and use of herbs as food and medicine, women's and family health, men's health, other herbal topics you are passionate about, traditional food, personal growth, cultural applications of herbs) as well as herbal education classes and programming for children. We are seeking workshops from individuals of African American, Caribbean, African,  or other descents from the Diaspora.

 Priority will be given to local presenters of Gullah Geechee ancestry and local First Nation/Indigenous ancestry first. It is important that the representation of the information being disseminated resembles the community that we inhabit and serve.  We will choose workshops that our committee feels best fits the theme of the conference. If you would like to present a workshop, complete the application below. Please note that by completing this application it does not denote that your application has been approved. You will receive notification of your acceptance.

A gratitude stipend of $125 will be paid to each presenter (per workshop) and your conference registration for both days and meal will be covered for you only. We will not offer additional reimbursement for travel, lodging or materials. You will be responsible for those items yourself. No materials will be copied on site, please bring what you need. All workshops are One hour and 15 minutes in length and you are expected to utilize the whole session. All workshops are taught outside in tents and are no-tech. There will be no virtual option this year, all workshops will be in person, and your attendance in person will be required in order to be compensated.

This year the gathering will be two days and workshops will begin sharply at 10:00 am. on each day. Please don't apply if you know that you will not be able to teach in person at the event. If you are accepted to teach and are a no-show (besides a  personal/family emergency), will not be invited to participate in future Gullah Geechee Herbal Gatherings as a presenter. There will be limited opportunities to be a back-up instructor, which would entail you being onsite, ready to present in case a workshop presenter is a no show.

Limited vendor opportunities will be available for presenters, please indicate on your application that you are interested in vending. If approved as a workshop presenter, you will receive more guidance on the vending opportunity.

Thank you for your interest in the Gullah Geechee Herbal Gathering, we are so excited to have you you potentially be a part of this amazing event.
