The Mother Tree Hub assists individuals with their efforts to dwell closer to nature and to develop enterprise that both rewilds nature and delivers ongoing regenerative stewardship.
At the Mother Tree Hub we consider that food, medicine and shelter security are directly related to the health and regeneration of nature and her wildlands. This integration depends on tangible relationships between people and nature. The work of the Mother Tree Hub includes aspects of wildlands and habitat recovery, regenerative agriculture and agroforestry, technology and education, and the creation and production of new foods, medicines and shelter.
All of this effort places the needs of nature first.

Currently the work of the Wildcraft Forest Centre is being expanded with additional land acquisition to take place which will allow the centre to transition towards the next generation of stewardship.
The important work we do…
- The Wildcraft Forest seeks to bridge the spiritual values of forests and watersheds with human consciousness and acts of tangible stewardship. We do this through a number of methods as follows.
- Add value to the living forest which then serves to create an alternative to logging and other forms of resource extraction.
- Regenerate Mother Trees and the natural supporting plant guilds or guardians which create both biotic and energetic balance within small ecosystems which then collectively contributes to planetary balance.
- Serve as stewards for these headwaters of the Columbia and the Shuswap Rivers and the great Inland Temperate Rainforest.
- Rewild diets and medicines so that populations can rebalance their lifestyles with energy from the northern forests.
- Educate and advocate for the protection of wild old growth forests and to regenerate new wild forests that will then become old growth forests. We represent the long view of stewardship practices.
- Educate and advocate for regenerative forests and stewardship both locally and internationally.
