The Wildcraft Forest is home to the Watershed Intelligence Network which is an activist New Media organization. Our focus is to help individuals, organizations, businesses and governments deliver good work within efforts that will better protect the environment and expand elements of stewardship social justice and equality.
The Watershed Intelligence Network was founded as a social enterprise by Don Elzer and a small group of associates. Don Elzer has been working in the field of community economic and cultural development since 1980, first as an activist, publisher and designer then as a planner and journalist.
Located at the Wildcraft Forest, the Watershed Intelligence Network (WIN) is an independent, cooperative, social enterprise organization. We foster the efficient and restorative use of resources to create Earth and Water stewardship that will make the world secure, just, prosperous, and life sustaining for all living beings.
Watershed Intelligence Network Extension Services
The Wildcraft Forest School is a center that delivers non-institutional learning. From a forest environment, the school offers skills, insights and inspiration for creating good stewardship and positive change in the world. It engages participants in transformative education that includes wild dynamics, personal empowerment, responsibility and co-mentorship. Most of the courses integrate experiential learning and ancient wisdom within the context of wildcrafting and challenges students to perform stewardship tasks as part of various certifications.
In 2015, the Wildcraft Forest School began to provide students with an “extension” program that is delivered by the Watershed Intelligence Network. WIN Extension Services can be described as an organized exchange of information and the deliberate transfer of skills where students apply work, research, advocacy, stewardship and problem solving within bio-regions, communities and ecosystems. This effort helps to facilitate interplay and nurture synergies within a vast complex of capacity building efforts, which then enables change in individuals, communities, cooperatives and enterprise.
