"Has anyone figured out how to make pine bark palatable?  I think boiling in several changes of water, drying, grinding into powder and making cakes with it might make it ok.  I see people mixing it into cookies or other baked goods but…"

"Chaga is amazing stuff.  Its one of the most potent mushroom medicines.  I wish we had more birches in this area, so that I could harvest some from the wild."

Inonotus Obliquus "Chaga Mushroom"

The chaga mushroom is a parasitic fungus that grows on birch and other types of trees. Black in color, it's easy to identify, edible, and medicinal. Commonly known as the true "tinder fungus" because of it's use in building fires. The chaga is the true tinder fungus, where as the false tinder fungus does not crumble. The chaga mushroom has a lot of immune stimulating phytochemicals and betulin that can be consumed as a tea.

Edible Pine Bark

If you've ever wondered if you could eat a tree, you should do some research on the White Pine. The inner bark can be roasted or fried to be eaten. Look at SurvialTopics.com. They have a good article about it here.

I wouldn't say that the information is unique, but it's the way the information is presented as one whole.  For instance, you could learn how to make a bow-drill fire anywhere, but would you learn how that fits in with a survival situation?  Would you learn these survival skills alongside sustainable living skills in permaculture?  I think it's the way that all of the subjects fit together that makes Alderleaf unique.  It's a very supportive environment and the instructors really care about you learning to your full potential.  You could teach yourself the skills, but you wouldn't get the holistic picture in a learning community.

Hey Donovan, I am a current student at Alderleaf and I'd love to answer any questions you might have about the program.  I've learned so much already in the past month and a half.
