“The Wildcraft Forest is a magical place where I can reconnect to my own humanity it is literally euphoric. I’m talking about it for days after I leave. The inspiring conversations, the mind-expanding curriculum, the fresh natural landscape. I first took the Wildcraft Basics course a couple years ago, I didn’t know what to expect when I went, but I had no idea that it was going to have such a lasting impact. I learned about how being influenced by nature can turn you into a patient, connected person who really cares on a deeper level. Now I’m eager to learn more about Wildcrafting and plant medicine and the importance of our natural world and the Wildcraft Forest provides and ongoing vehicle for me to do that. Don and others are endlessly working to make our community and the world community a better place. The school works on countless projects to bring awareness to environmental issues and also runs an online magazine outlining these issues for the general public. I’ve never seen such a great example of doing so much with such few resources including brilliant courses, delicious teas and foods, and even just an atmosphere of non-judgment and inclusiveness. It is TOP PRIORITY to have this place expand for the goodness of our community and the goodness of our Earth.”
