Gather and transform nature’s gifts into joy and health.
Learn how to forage sustainably from our wild forests to extract herbal medicines our wild spaces have to offer. Connect with your ancestral roots and get back to nature. Literally. The adventure begins with a foraging wildcraft walk along the north shore of Kootenay lake where you will learn what plants grow where, why, and what benefits they can provide for our health. After a quick journey to the lake-side homestead near Johnston’s Landing, BC you can relax, tour the garden, and enjoy a snack before learning how to process our harvest into magic.
