The value of the wild

This is probably my favorite part of the job -creating something from the wild space –where most of the locals can only see land for their gardens, wood for construction, and animals for hunting, I run through and see a place where people can experience nature; an opportunity to create an economy based on not touching but appreciating the wild resources as they are. This is another tool we try and use during our events – create an economy around wild spaces where one does not need to cut down the tree or clear a forest to feed the family. You do not need to create a product from the forest when the forest itself is the product, the mountains, the clear streams, the tangled woods and cold weather these are the products we sell –their value increasing exponentially with more people sharing the experience of nature.

We would post images of our trips and when someone would ask where we went there would be no answer forthcoming, or a vague ‘somewhere out there’.
