2016 Foraging and Rewilding Course


Learn the basics of rewilding while diving deep into the world of plants.

Meets once a month from March through November.

Classes will be held the 3rd Saturday of each moth,

and will meet at Millport Conservancy (near Lititz, PA)

and at our cabin (near the Green Dragon in Ephrata, PA).

Each class will be 2-3 hours long starting at 1:00PM.

What will be covered?

  1. How to develop a relationship with the plants around you, including identification,

their various uses (especially as food), and how to approach plants like a hunter-gatherer-gardener.

2. Rewilding theory, including discussion of the history and meaning of the term, and it’s limitations.

3. Hunter-gatherer-gardener skills, including simple tools, traps, and hunting weapons,

as well as basic woodworking with stone and metal tools,

and improving your awareness, ability to read the landscape, and move through the environment.

4. Ecology, including how plants interact with insects, mammals, birds, fungi, and other plants.

Online Mentoring:

While the classes will be held from March – November, you will be provided support

and resources from the time you register though the end of 2016.

This will be in the form of a closed Facebook group, where we will share stories.


Registration is due by the end of February, but the sooner you sign up

  1. I am interested in this! Will make the drive from lewisburg. Thanks for timely sending. Getting New years off to a good start. More soon, sj

  2. Ps: happy to see that it happens same night as Lancaster contra dance. Will probably look for overnight accommodations/ a place to camp in my car. Im hoping you might have a lead. But it will all get worked out in good time. I’m pleased to be thinking about it all.

  3. I know Millport Conservancy has a campsite and Lancaster County Park should too. Other than that, I don’t know much about hotels around here, Lititz has a few nice ones, but they are on the pricey side. If you email me with more detail on what you are looking for, I might be able to find someone in Lancaster. Anyway, can’t wait to get the class going!
