The Wildcraft Forest School issues a Wildcraft Practitioners Diploma. We offer seasonal classes, seminars, fieldtrips and workshops, which provide an inspirational and creative environment for students ranging from children to adults and from beginners to professionals. For 30 years we have sought to share quality experiences, from leading edge artists, thinkers and do’ers locally, regionally, nationally and internationally. Our scope is to link the arts, creativity, permaculture, food, wellness and activism with wildcrafting and the sentient Earth.
With “Wild Sentience”, the Wildcraft Forest creates wellness from the wild as we carefully harvest forest and savannah botanicals for essences, flower remedies, perfumes, cosmetics and medicinal teas. More and more synthetics are appearing within all forms of wellness products and cosmetics; even the plants contained within “natural” blends may have been treated with pesticides or other harmful chemicals.
At the Wildcraft Forest we provide makers of medicines, perfumers and makers of fine essential oils and essences with wildcrafted “Mother Tree” botanicals and unique forest blends which are truly “natural” and represent the edge of fragrance and medicine. Visit our store page to find the products we have available, and learn more about our Mother Tree Dispensaries and our Sentience label.
We offer courses in Plant Spirit Medicines where we travel students into rainforest or alpine areas to study medicinal plants and trees within the context of wildcrafting. Participants are introduced to wild medicine plant propagation methods that link Earth energies, harvesting and stewardship practices all driven by wild dynamics. Participants are introduced to the art of alchemy that includes exploration into historical blending practices that includes fermentation, extracts, teas and topicals. We dwell within a remote deep rainforest where water energies interact with ecosystems that present unique sentient power that demonstrate how a forest can become a healer of most afflictions.
At Wildcraft Forest Botanicals we provide wild plant restoration, propagation, growing and harvesting services under a strict code of ethics that includes our promise. Our regenerative approach to stewardship serves a model for re-wilding and offers food and health care sectors an opportunity to transition to a “regenerative” approach to business and supply. Our “Mother Tree” system of harvesting contains an Ayurvedic approach, which helps to elevate the nature of wellness within natural formulas. Learn more about our restoration efforts, plant sourcing, contract growing, harvesting and our partners.
Learn about the wild botanicals that we are harvesting and discuss how we can supply your mission. Learn how we mix ecology, nature-supported-agriculture and storytelling.
The Wildcraft Forest Botanicals is located in the Monashee Region of British Columbia just on the edge of the North Okanagan, one hour from Kelowna and 20 minutes from Vernon and just east of Lumby enroute to Cherryville and Nakusp.
Yasei Sanctuary Forests
The Wildcraft Forest practices regenerative forest stewardship, which includes propagating “whole forest systems”; this includes the forest over-story and the under-story. We have created a network of Yasei Sanctuary Forests which serve as protected forests where each is used as a base to protect and restore wild ecosystems while propagating wild and domesticated food and medicine crops in small wild dynamic gardens. Our Community Supported Wildcrafting (CSW) membership helps with the planting, growing, care and harvesting of wild systems; at the same time members learn various aspects of plant spirit medicines which includes Yaseiki Programs. Members might help for the day or for a few days at a time.
At the Wildcraft Forest we plant new old growth forests Our Seeds to Trees initiative seeks to gather the ancient genetic memory found within old growth forests and then to regenerate those species in riparian ecosystems. Learn about our efforts as we create wild plant nurseries in remote areas, collect old growth seeds and then plant these treeas in remote areas. Every year we collect seeds, germinate and plant seeds and seedlings using the “old ways”.

Wildcrafting is a practice integrating local ecological knowledge, family and land history, conscious harvesting, land stewardship, activism, and storytelling all into one lovely practice. Practice may be an understatement, for Wildcrafting is a way of complete being, a framework by which to exist in the world. It is art. It is science. It is spirituality.
We were assigned homework to do a report on three plants - two that are native to the interior of BC and one that is "invasive"(what a terrible term). We were also tasked with looking back, like faaaar back into our ancestry, to 5000 years ago. To imagine the life we would have lead back then. Due to how busy I've been lately, I was a tad stressed. I guess I am a bit of a perfectionist in some ways and wanted to be fully prepared. Nothing could have prepared me for the weekend (and yet everything in my life up to this point has been preparing me).
Green Earth Offsets supports the rewilding of places and people. There is a new generation of people eager to be lifelong stewards of wildlands on planet Earth. They seek to be part of the solution by providing the work required to restore and regenerate ecosystems as a means to strengthen the meaning and purpose that resides in their soul. The Wildcraft Forest has been supporting this effort through a growing network of Yasei Sanctuary Forests which offers participants meaning, purpose, livelihood and resilience which includes spirit, sentience, science, semiotics, stewardship and sanctuary, all linked to ancient wisdom and the natural world.
Yasei Sanctuary Forests are not only spiritual temples supported by nature, but they are providing new values, qualities and systems that are strengthening the desire for protecting standing forests as living organisms within a 300 year stewardship plan. At the Wildcraft Forest we understand that everything is connected.
In conjunction with the National Healing Forest initiative the Wildcraft Forest is now embarking on an expansion called, “The Trail of Song”. Healing Forests are where survivors and families of the Residential School legacy and murdered and missing Indigenous women, as well as all Canadians, can come together to heal, do ceremony, reflect, talk or meditate. Within the Healing Forest, all individuals, including survivors and their families, can share and better understand the legacy of the residential school system and move forward in a positive way.
Please note we are presently increasing course fees, however the present fees will be in place until January 1st as an Early Bird Discount.
