Radical Bakers Harvest Camp

16-19th September 2021 at Crabapple Community, Shrewsbury.

Tickets available below.

This year we will be holding Radical Bakers Harvest Camp at Crabapple Community. It will have the same focus on enjoying and preserving the Harvest while building our resilience and self-reliance. We will be limiting numbers to 100 so that people can socially distance if they want to.

As usual we will be baking all the bread for the Baker’s Arms Café on-site and you can get involved in the baking sessions. We have our Camp Market each lunchtime, where you are welcome to sell your own hand-made or second-hand items.

As the year will be getting old, we will have a large central fire as well as a warm tent “The Cwtch” with a wood-burner and seating. There will also be hot water on tap for hot water bottles. Come prepared for whatever the weather may bring. There will be a drying rack by the pizza oven for wet clothes and footwear.

If you have any questions not covered on our Info page, please contact us by email: hello@radicalbakers.org.

Skills for self-reliance

As well as our Summer Gathering, we have an Autumn Harvest Camp in the Parc Cenedlaethol Eryri (Snowdonia National Park). Our beautiful site is at Cerddin Farm in Llanymawddwy near Dinas Mawddwy, Gwynedd, Wales. (not in 2021 tho…) It is a hardy and free-thinking camping weekend with hands-on workshops and activities during the day and a bar with quality live music in the evenings. Our focus is on preserving and enjoying the Harvest and building our skills for self-reliance.

Yn ogystal â’n prif ymgynnull ym mis Mehefin, mae gennym Wersyll Cynhaeaf ar fferm yn Llanymawddwy ger Dinas Mawddwy, Cymru. Rydym yn benwythnos gwersylla cyfeillgar a meddwl rhydd gyda gweithdai a gweithgareddau ymarferol yn ystod y dydd a bar gyda cherddoriaeth fyw o safon gyda’r nos. Rydym yn canolbwyntio ar warchod a mwynhau’r Cynhaeaf ac adeiladu ein sgiliau ar gyfer hunanddibyniaeth. Dysgu sgiliau ymarferol sylfaenol mewn amgylchedd hamddenol.

Our Harvest Camp is in a beautiful, secluded valley at the head of the Dyfi River, with flat space for camping and hard standing for campervans. We are totally Solar Powered from the Green Dragon Outback solar generator and the farm that we are on is powered by Hydro, so there is the opportunity to have a look at a serious bit of renewable power engineering.
