Keep your eye out for classes

Over the years SPS has done many wildcrafting classes and in some way almost every class SPS does can be seen as a “wildcrafting” class. But to better separate the Nature classes, Bushcraft/Survival classes, and Medicinal, from the Wildcrafting classes. SPS has decided if it’s an edible class with a mix of modern ingredient with wild harvest ingredients, or a utilitarian class (which are typically Bushcraft) where we gather something by hand but may use modern convenience to process or make the item then it’s a “wildcrafting” class. 

In 2017 SPS did 5 Wildcrafting classes based around single plants, I’m afraid I did not bring these classes back for 2018 but SPS does want plan to revisit these classes for the future and build upon them. Now for 2019 SPS still would like to do some Wildcrafting classes, so keep your eye out for that.

But something new SPS will be doing with DeSoto state park is offering Wildcrafted meals. Robert Wilson has been doing this for about two years now. But hasn't been something officially done with with SPS.
