Radical Bakers Gatherings are friendly weekend camping events that give you a chance to learn and share practical skills. Focused discussions and hands-on workshops during the day lead into quality music and dancing on the Green Dragon Solar Stage. We believe in personal responsibility and self-empowerment. We have hope for the future and our goal is to live in a more sustainable way.

Hi, I just wanted to send a note to say thank you so much for hosting radical bakers. My family had an amazing time and for me it was great that someone else catered healthy amazing tasty food for us! I’ve come away inspired and energised to get on with projects and believe anything is possible now with a little research. It was so good to meet people with a similar out look on life and listen to their stories and what they have achieved. Thank you to everyone who worked in the kitchens, behind the scenes organising everything and running the workshops as well as my fellow campers for being good people to spend a summer weekend with!
Hello All, thank you, once again, for a really good festival. This one seemed especially needed and joyful. It brought a great deal of much needed energy to my soul and hope going forward. Please extend all my thanks to everyone who made it so special.
