“We need the tonic of wildness...At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.” 
~Henry David Thoreau

This local wild living nutrition design is a foundational integration workshop that offers an exploration of edible and medicinal plants, local living nutrition, permaculture fundamentals, wholistic health and herbalism principles. The workshop honours the living soil of our bodies as an essential quality with the living soil of the earth.
