Wildcrafted Food and Medicine Certification
Presented in Learning Retreats or online through Distance Learning Certification.

We have changed our Wild Alchemy Training Program. Now more than ever the world is seeking to rewild human consciousness along with planet Earth, and now you can make this happen no matter where you live. Join us for our Wildcrafted Food and Medicine Certification Learning Retreats which are held in person or online. 

You can complete your certification by attending one of our scheduled retreats or you can sign up for our distance learning certification which includes a placement into one of our 5-day support retreats that you can attend here in British Columbia at anytime in the future.

This Wild Alchemy program offers an understanding of wild plants for the application of unique foods and medicines. This series is ideal for both beginners and established 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 in what we call Forest Biotics, 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.

Both the retreat and online learning offer 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.
