EAT FRESH AND LEAVE THE SPACE FOOD ON THE SHELF
Most wild food classes focus solely on edible plants. While this is undeniably important knowledge to posses, the availability of plants and berries is highly dependent upon both the time of the year and location. Our course goes in a different direction and combines both traditional and modern knowledge to help you eat better and carry less. In this two day workshop, we cover how to catch fish and wild game, make simple and effective traps and snares, various cooking techniques, net making & primitive fishing, drying racks, breads, bannock, how to pack and organize, great recipes, and much more. There is no prerequisite for this course, but it is very knife intensive. Knife techniques are also taught as part of the course and a folding saw is highly recommended as well.
All food and meals are provided, but you may
bring whatever snacks and drinks you'd like as well. Please bring the
camping items necessary for your comfort during the workshop. All of the items on our website are available to try and purchase during the weekend.
Bushcraft Northwest also offers private
workshops for individuals, groups, and government agencies. Cost varies
depending on group size and whether the course will be held at our
location in Goldendale, WA or if we are traveling to your location.
