One Small Space
at a Time
Mother Tree Hub

As you improve your skills at picking up feelings from plants and trees you will discover that plant energies within ecosystems gather into energy guilds. Often these guilds are strongest around Mother Trees. Like all plants, trees provide energy emissions, which also carry communication between themselves and others.

We really have a lot to learn about how everything works – and how everything is connected. Join us for a presentation about the importance of Mother Trees.
The Mother Tree Hub assists individuals with their efforts to dwell closer to nature and to develop enterprise that both rewilds nature and delivers ongoing regenerative stewardship.

The Wildcraft Forest has incubated social enterprise, as well as creative and research activities for over thirty years, however, the formal incubator is now 10 years old. Today as a function of the Wildcraft Forest Foundation, the Mother Tree Hub develops and delivers conservation and enterprise efforts which creates greater values from a living wild forest as opposed to an industrialized woodland that is eventually killed and destroyed.

As far as we know, the Mother Tree Hub is the only wildcrafting incubator in the world and it is a practical stewardship solution in the wake of Earth changes and climate change.

We are a new generation of people eager to be lifelong stewards of wildlands on planet Earth. We seek to be part of the solution by providing the work required to restore and regenerate ecosystems as a means to strengthen the meaning and purpose that resides in our soul. The Wildcraft Forest has been supporting this effort through a growing network of Yasei Sanctuary Forests which offers participants meaning, purpose, livelihood and resilience which includes spirit, sentience, science, semiotics, stewardship and sanctuary, all linked to ancient wisdom and the natural world.

Yasei Sanctuary Forests are not only spiritual temples supported by nature, but they are providing new values, qualities and systems that are strengthening the desire for protecting standing forests as living organisms within a 300 year stewardship plan. At the Wildcraft Forest we understand that everything is connected.

​Wildcraft Forest School Extension Services

​The Wildcraft Forest School is a center that delivers non-institutional learning. From a forest environment, the school offers skills, insights and inspiration for creating good stewardship and positive change in the world. It engages participants in transformative education that includes wild dynamics, personal empowerment, responsibility and co-mentorship. Most of the courses integrate experiential learning and ancient wisdom within the context of wildcrafting and challenges students to perform stewardship tasks as part of various certifications and activities.

The Wildcraft Forest School has its roots within the Wildcraft Forest which developed a unique approach to wildcrafting that considers the forest and the natural world as being sentient and intelligent. Founded by Don Elzer in the 1990’s the Elzer family had had a long history of involvement in ancient nature-based alchemy which he would later apply to the teachings presented by the school.

In 2015, the Wildcraft Forest School began to provide students with an “extension” program intended to incubate more stewardship activities. The extension work is described as an organized exchange of information and the deliberate transfer of skills where students apply work, research, advocacy, stewardship and problem solving within bio-regions, communities and ecosystems. This effort helps to facilitate interplay and nurture synergies within a vast complex of capacity building efforts, which then enables change in individuals, communities, cooperatives and enterprise.

The Wildcraft Forest School is an independent, cooperative, social enterprise organization which is supported by the Wildcraft Forest Foundation and its partners. Collectively we foster the efficient and restorative use of resources to create better Earth and Water stewardship that will make the world secure, just, prosperous, and life sustaining for all living beings.
