Climate change is the most important issue humanity has ever faced throughout evolution. That`s because everything that gives us life on this planet depends on the health and well-being of the natural world. In 2009, I started Prairie Infusions out of a feeling of urgency and helplessness due to climate change. I did not want to feel helpless. We need to find and explore many different ways and ideas to adapt to our new realities. If there was ever a moment to follow your passion and do something that matters to you, that moment is now. We need to reduce our consumption, pollution, and waste; we need to reuse, repair, and refuse. Please respect our life-giving Earth Mother.

Wild Food Walks – every month, from April through October, we will take one Saturday for our foraging walks. Each walk will lead us through the Boreal forest from 8:00 AM to 8:00 PM and it includes a scrumptious wild food supper (that we all prepare together) at the end of the day. Please come with an open mind to learn and share. Wild Food Walks will NOT be cancelled due to weather. Please bring baskets, containers, bags, etc. for your own plentiful wild-harvesting; walking shoes and protective clothing; mosquito head-nets are essential for walks in July and August. Limit of 8 participants per walk. We are fully booked for 2015.
We celebrate our Mother Earth every day. We will introduce you to the beauty of wildcrafting through our weekly Community Supported Foraging Program and our monthly Wild Food Walks. To a simpler and healthier living!
Wild-crafting is the practice of gathering plants, plant parts, mushrooms, and lichens by hand in their natural environment to be used for food, medicines, and crafts.
Forest-gardening is an ancient land use method in which agroforestry is combined with good animal husbandry to create a highly resilient agro-ecosystem. Life and life cycles are supported, biodiversity promoted, ecosystem services cherished, and ecological health achieved in order to maintain a balance with the natural world.
