About Our Non-Profit Work
The WANDER School was founded by Herbalist, Botanist, Author, and Professional Forager, Abby Artemisia, in 2015 to serve communities by providing inspiration for a personal connection with nature and empowering individuals to improve their health through holistic means. You can read more about Abby here.
As of 2020, we are now a 501(c)3 Registered Non-Profit Organization with the mission to connect underserved communities in need (such as Indigenous, Black, Queer, and Appalachian) to medicinal herbs & preserve traditional ethnobotanical knowledge. Learn more about our non-profit work here. The WANDER School is based in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. Services range from botanical property surveys, wildcrafting apprenticeships, and herbal education workshops to extensive virtual learning opportunities, all available to help people make connections with the natural world. Free resources available from The WANDER School to provide accessible nature connection and empowerment include the Wander, Forage & Wildcraft podcast and our YouTube Channel featuring Plant Identification, Classes, Plant Walks, and more.
