Rewilding Sanctuary
Stewardship and Regeneration Certification for Rewilding Places

A Sanctuary Forest represents a location where stewardship is taking place which seeks to protect, expand or rewild the natural biodiversity of a place. A Sanctuary Forest is also seen as a spiritual centre where the stewards of the place have created a sentient relationship with all of the biotic beings located there. A Sanctuary Forest can be located on private or public land and is largely placed there by the sheer will, of those individuals willing to steward that place. A Sanctuary Forest is created upon certain pillars that include stewardship, science, sentience, spirit and sanctuary.

A Sanctuary Forest can be of any size, stewards are provided with training and toolkits so that they can better understand their role and responsibility. Sanctuary Forests help to seed stewardship within cultures where it has become lacking. This effort seeks to create an understanding that the natural world is sentient. Sanctuary Forests provide a platform for learning about the natural world, and for research and data collection – these forests can be networked regionally and globally.

The design of a Sanctuary Forest also includes a plan for human habitat, a food and medicine forest and commercial gardening operations which do not conflict with the regeneration of wildlands and the biodiversity of wild species.  

This Rewilding Design Certification is a basic version of the more comprehensive Sanctuary Forest Design Certification. This program focuses on rewilding farms, gardens, communities, remote landscapes and interface landscapes through distance learning.

This series is ideal for gardeners, farmers, landscapers and other food and agriculture specialists seeking to incorporate rewilding into their scope of operations or workplace. The series focuses on Wild Habitat Forests, Food Forests and Medicine Forests as well as demonstration forests for practicing various kinds of forest therapy.

Mystery School
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".

I promise to steward the land, elements and living beings with agape thoughtfulness and ceremony that seeks permission from Earth Spirits. I will study and seek to understand wild places and plant spirit medicines, craft and food that considers biodiversity and shadow biodiversity. I promise to propagate, restore and spread wild habitat and Earth-based teachings into areas of human settlement. I will seek to understand and implement natural eco-system plant breeding systems and techniques that are localized and based on ancient indigenous knowledge and traditions.
