Join us in outings to increase our awareness of and participation with the natural world. Wild edible/medicinal walks, tracking adventures, primitive camping, nature study/awareness and traditional northern arts and crafts using materials hunted and gathered from the local landscape will provide the foundation for our meetups. Everyone with an interest is encouraged to join. The term Wildcrafting typically refers to the identification and harvesting of edible/medicinal plants. While this will be the topic of many of our outings, the broadest meaning of the word is used as our guideline. WildCrafting will include any activity or skill that puts us in direct participation with the natural world for our needs. Other words used to describe these interests are primitive skills, rewilding, feral living or wilderness survival. Popular teachers in the field include Thomas Elpel, Jon Young, Tom Brown Jr., and Larry Dean Olsen to name but a few.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
