Climate Resiliency Training & Wild Food Intensive: New Weeklong Program

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

We’ve added a new weeklong program coming in August with a focus on becoming more resilient in a changing world. The focus of the week is to pass along the systems and skills we’ve developed over the past 21 years that deal with living without infrastructure, as well as to spend a few hours of each day identifying and eating wild edible plants.

The systems and skills we will cover are useful when living in a remote environment, and some transfer to life in the city when the grid goes down. There will be an emphasis on the basics needed to live well: food, water, fire, compost, sanitation, energy, cooking and gardening.

There will also a big emphasis on foraging for wild foods. Mid-August is the season of bounty in northern Maine, and we’ll introduce the economic field botany that we cover during our semester courses.

The week is for people who want to learn to be more self-reliant and less concerned about the grid going down, are interested in purchasing some remote land and want to develop the skills needed to live there, and people who are interested in learning to decrease the impact their lifestyle has on the planet by doing things themselves.

This is not a doom-fest. We are not paranoid, paramilitary, religious, or any of the other stereotypes sometimes associated with self-reliance training. We are outdoor educators who spend 7 months each year off the grid, and have developed systems to make this easier and more fun. During this course we’re sharing those systems in a lighthearted manner. This course will not teach you how to get out of the city in a grid-down situation. It will teach you how to live peacefully with the land in a remote location.

The dates are August 16-22. More information is available here.
