It's here.
Rubber has created our modern chemical industrial complex as it helped to solidify the presence of Bayer, Dupont and others to drive the synthetic economy. The question now is: Will rubber define a new era of economic transition?

Great civilizations have fallen because they failed to prevent the degradation of the soils on which they were founded. Our world today could suffer the same fate.
Research out of Japan shows that walking in the woods may play a role in fighting cancer.

"As other class participants arrived, it was apparent that we were indeed a “clan” of sorts. There was instantaneous connection and an awe and wonder for the Earth and all that her majesty has to offer us - and more, about what we can offer back..."

Connecting the forest to everything...
People closer to the Earth and the plant spirits knew a lot about food and medicines. Five hundred years after Columbus we have yet to develop one staple crop from the wild, we have merely worked from existing genetic materials provided to us by indigenous people.

WATER
secret
To this day, water continues to be a mystery to us, but instead of celebrating our spiritual connection to water and how it supports life, we celebrate its function. For many of us water has become simply an instrument for us to consume; but for a few, water remains mysterious and sacred because it holds certain secrets – like that long standing question:
Where does it come from?
Searching for the soul of water

Between 2002 and 2011, its global market value almost tripled, reaching $62.8 billion. With grocery and health-food stores, food production and distribution companies all sprouting up in the name of organic, the consumer bandwagon for healthy and environmentally conscious food choices is also a sales-boosting goldmine.

We really don’t know what to expect as climate shifts occur and no place is it more evident than within the microscopic world of plant life that surrounds our every waking moment. The spread of newly discovered “decomposers” can be found creeping northward as the western North America climate warms and desertification mixes with urbanization.  These microscopic fungal spores of Coccidioides which is a genus of dimorphic ascomycetes in the family Onygenaceae have member species which are the cause of coccidioidomycosis, also known as San Joaquin Valley Fever, an infectious fungal disease caused by inhaling airbourne spores which travel within dust and other particulate matter.

Invasive Plants: Noxious Enemy or Remedial Friend?
The Forest Almanac is a production from the Wildcraft Forest School Extension Program
The Forest Almanac seeks to educate, advocate and explore the regenerative forest through sentience, stewardship, science, spirit and sanctuary. As a production from the Wildcraft Forest School Extension Program we endeavor to bring a greater understanding of natural systems and the tools required so that we may better rewild planet Earth. This e-magazine helps people explore environmental problems from a practical, how-to standpoint. We explore the forest, natural systems and responsible travel, innovation, renewable energy, recycling, organic agricultural practices, whole food and wellness. We also tackle tough issues from a neighborhood and village perspective like education, affordable housing and innovation within the localization movement.
Our Community Supported Wildcrafting (CSW) membership helps with the planting, growing, care and harvesting of wild systems; at the same time members learn various aspects of plant spirit medicines, which include Yasei Shinrin Yoku Programs. Members might help for the day or for a few days at a time or simply use their membership as their way to retreat into nature for quiet times. You will have access to special events which includes the Free Energy Festival, Roots and Resins, the Indigo Series and the Shelter Revolution.
