The Forest Almanac is an online magazine published by Wildcraft Forest School Extension Services.
At the Forest Almanac we encourage a better understanding of nature, eco-systems and our changing planet. The magazine helps people explore environmental problems from a practical, how-to standpoint. We explore the forest, nature and responsible travel, new 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.
The Wildcraft Forest School is a center that delivers non-institutional learning. From a forest environment, the school offers skills, insights and inspiration for creating good stewardship and positive change in the world. It engages participants in transformative education that includes wild dynamics, personal empowerment, responsibility and co-mentorship. Most of the courses integrate experiential learning and ancient wisdom within the context of wildcrafting and challenges students to perform stewardship tasks as part of various certifications and activities.
In 2015, the Wildcraft Forest School began to provide students with an “extension” program intended to incubate more stewardship activities. The extension work is described as an organized exchange of information and the deliberate transfer of skills where students apply work, research, advocacy, stewardship and problem solving within bio-regions, communities and ecosystems. This effort helps to facilitate interplay and nurture synergies within a vast complex of capacity building efforts, which then enables change in individuals, communities, cooperatives and enterprise.
The Forest Almanac is part of this effort.
