Teaching practical skills for living closer to the earth
We believe that it is possible for humans to live in balance with the web of life. Our goal is to provide people with the education, inspiration, and information necessary to do so. The breadth of skill that our instructors and consultants bring forth is vast; we exist both in the wild and domesticated worlds, marrying innovations from the present day, historical times, and humanity's deep past in order to present a toolkit for living now as functional human beings. We enhance peoples' everyday lives by teaching and consulting on skills that we see as intensly relevent as well as deeply fullfilling and enjoyable.
The Essentials Program is our premier course, a distillation of what we deem "Essential" to living in an earth-based way, or "off the land". We will delve into everything Wild Abundance is about. The program meets for 1 weekend/month, March-November, and includes a couple of longer adventerous field trips.
- Eco-homestead design and planning
- Natural Building consultation and design
- Wild Foods Plant inventory of your land and/or surroundings
- Edible landscape and permaculture design
A seven Saturday series on our unique and useful plants and fungi, and the astounding forests they live in. Join us in witnessing the lavish unfurling of Spring as we learn to identify, appreciate, and utilize our local tree, plant and fungal allies. Each class will explore a new site, emphasizing a variety of local habitats and forest-communities. Class focuses will be: botanical identification, uses for homesteading and survival, edible & medicinal uses, harvesting ethics, and ecological connections.
