Wildcrafting Foods and Medicines
Provides a working understanding of wildcrafting, stewardship and plant spirit medicine
Presented within a 5 day Camp Program
The language of nature consists of codes and energies, which serve as the foundation for life on Earth. This camp series introduces participants to practical methods by which humans can “connect” with the natural world and offers advanced information for wildcrafting plants and habitat for better health. This professional wildcrafting program includes a four lesson distance learning section and provides great learning opportunities for naturalists, healthcare professionals and food specialists. The series helps participants rediscover ancient forms of intuition that are linked to nature and includes wild plant identification in a number of wild ecosystems and focuses on the food and medicinal values in over 30 wild species. In this 5-day camp, participants will explore the gathering and preparation of wild foods; understanding plant spirit medicine and the relationships between species that support regenerative stewardship.
Participants are trained to deliver a number of multi-session wildcrafting programs, one for children and youth; youth at risk; seniors and for wellness groups. This training provides good opportunities for expanding existing workshop and special event programs.
This camp is a great way to learn about better health and lifestyle choices and gives participants a chance to explore pristine environments and understand how the forest is sentient. Upon completion of the camp series, participants will be able to apply for a Wildcrafting Bioregional Studies Certificate (WBSC), which can assist them in both career and self-employment endeavors especially suited for outdoor recreation, education, healthcare, food, nutrition and botany.
•I promise to dedicate my life to the protection of Planet Earth and her organic multidimensional systems and to elements of sentient stewardship driven by “agape” principles. I will take personal responsibility for the human presence on Planet Earth; and will seek to solve problems and restore her natural systems that support life and the presence of being.

“Rewild” is the distance-learning program offered by the Wildcraft Forest School. We offer online courses, seminars and outdoor challenges and restoration programs which provide an inspirational and creative environment for students ranging from children to adults and from beginners to professionals.
With the Earth being placed at risk it has become necessary to find, educate and initiate new keepers of ancient wisdom. In every Wildcraft Forest School course new keepers have emerged and in order to further support this effort we have made public our Mystery School that will share the “lesser mysteries” in this realm we call "wild mysticism".
