Wildcrafting (or wild-harvesting or foraging) is the practice of gathering plants, plant parts, mushrooms, and lichens by hand in their natural environment. These wildcrafted treasures are used for food, medicines, and crafts.

We offer Saskatchewan Wild Food Baskets year-round; i.e., a monthly box with wildcrafted delicacies delivered to you via bus Tuesdays or Thursdays. Small $50 per basket. Large $100 per basket.

Climate change is the most important issue of our time. 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. Every moment matters. Identify what you love and do exactly that. In 2015, climate change is now irreversible. If there was ever a moment to follow your passion and do something that matters to you, that moment is now. Connect with nature. Reduce, reuse, refuse, repair, and share.

Our 160-acre Forest Garden is an entirely natural quarter of land in Saskatchewan where we wildcraft mushrooms, berries, and forest botanicals. It is a lovely, remote piece of land where 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. We like to share our wild-harvest with you. 

With love, Elisabeth Poscher, Ph.D. (in Arid Lands Resource Sciences, University of Arizona)
