We’re nearing the end of week 3 of the spring Wilderness Bushcraft Semester, and today we were out on the river with a cold north wind and driving rain challenging every paddle stroke as the group was learning to canoe. It took a lot out of us. This evening I made a dutch oven dinner and was sitting back listening to Maine Public Radio (radio is my off-grid media of choice) and was delightfully surprised to hear my old friend Chris Knapp on a show called Maine Calling. Chris is the co-founder of Koviashuvik Local Living School in Temple, Maine, has been a guest instructor at the field school and has been on our podcast (JMB Podcast Episode 21). He and Frank Giglio of Farm & Forage Kitchen spoke about their experience homesteading, foraging for wild food and building a relationship with the land.
I really enjoyed it. You can listen and download the show as a podcast at:
