Wild Alchemy
Wildcrafted Food and Medicine Certification
Mind and body intervention practices presented in a 5 day camp

This 5 day camp happens monthly and offers an advanced program for understanding and working with wild plants for the application of unique foods and medicines. This series is ideal for healthcare professionals and food specialists. The series includes wild plant characteristics and properties within a number of wild ecosystems and places them into a context that includes plant spirit medicine. Courses offer learning experiences with nature’s nutrients, which include phytoncides as well as ancient remedies and aromas.

The series includes food and medicine preparation as well as methods for approaching value-added opportunities as a business or service. The series also includes fermentation processes within historical alchemy methods. The series also leads participants into an advanced understanding of plant spirit medicines and species relationships that support regenerative stewardship.

Participants are trained to deliver a number of multi-session 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 series is a great way to learn about better health and lifestyle choices and gives participants a chance to explore pristine environments and capture skills in wild food and medicine making. Upon completion of the camps, participants will be able to apply for a Wildcrafted Foods and Medicines Certification, which can assist them in both career and self-employment, endeavors especially suited for education, healthcare, food, nutrition and outdoor recreation.
