What is Living Afield? Living Afield means getting back in touch with the natural world. It means eating healthier, spending more time out of doors. It means reconnecting with the world around us. It means eating wild foods, and using the medicinal properties of plants to heal body and spirit.
In days of old, forests were dark foreboding places filled with peril. Fairy tales were written to scare children into staying away from these terrifying places. These stories were filled with witches and ogres waiting to devour little children. Over the years, these stories have been altered in order to appear cute and fuzzy. The original ideas for their drafting seem outdated and ridiculous by today's standards. However most people rarely venture into the natural world. We become so entangled in the day to day drudgery of our lives, that we fail to see the beauty and bounty that surrounds us each and every day. Whether it is kayaking, hiking, camping, or some other outdoor activity, the peace and serenity of the natural world can nourish our spirits. Get out and enjoy what nature has to offer. Because... "Adventure awaits beyond the beaten path" Sincerely,

Plants are the foundation for all other living things. If not for plants and photosynthesis, we would not have the oxygen we breath. As if supplying our oxygen is not enough, many of drugs used by western medicine were originally derived from plants.

If you listen to many of the shows on television, certain "survival experts" would have you believe survival entails hunkering down under a tree in the forest, fighting everything mother nature throws at you, and making it through. It is all about going toe to toe with, and beating the old girl at her own game. Yea, no.
