Mission Statement

Our mission is to celebrate the connection between personal health and wild lands.

We are inspired to promote and practice sustainable ways of living honoring wild nature and the evolution of community. Examples of our work include growing, harvesting and preparing local, wild and living food for the community, educating about the great values of the wild edible and medicinal abundance available in our area, providing local microgreens for the public schools, restaurants and stores and educating about organic land stewardship practices through our project Bee Happy Lands.
