Wilderculture helps us design a landscape that can nourish a human animal. Spiritually, nutritionally, physically and emotionally.
Some believe that it’s arrogant to ask our wild spaces to ‘serve’ us; why should humans be more important than nature? It's common to think of land turned over to nature as compensation to our planet for the damage being done elsewhere.
We believe that taking land out of all food production is offering a false choice. Since the dawn of agriculture, we've ‘funded’ a furious growth in human population by mining our soils and habitats. We’re now faced with a stark choice: harvest from our planet in a way that accommodates nature and regenerates the resource as best we can, or let some people go hungry!
Taking large tracts of land away from food production for the sake of nature then feeding the human population on efficient grains, grown on depleting soils is going to provision the de-evolution of our species. This approach can only lead to an eventual return to destroying the habitat you sought to protect; it's going to be the only remaining resource! Technology may help but it's not going to solve this problem. There has only, and will only ever be one way to sustain life; from sunlight energy converting through green growing plants.
