The Wildcraft Forest School
The Wildcraft Forest School is workshop center that 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. The studio village has been operating as a workshop centre for over 30 years. We seek 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.
Wildcrafting: Plant Spirit Medicines
With “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.
The Wildcraft Forest is home to a wildcrafters ecovillage. Our ecovillage provides rustic retreat accommodation as a farmstay experience where visitors can learn and participate in wildcrafting, permaculture, farming, education and stewardship projects and other forms of activity in keeping with the Wildcraft Forest mission. You can stay for a day, a week, a month or longer.
