Our Mission is to promote cultural and environmental resilience through the education of earth-based arts, traditions, and technology.
Rewild Portland is a non-profit organization based in Portland, Oregon. Our mission comes to life in the form of educational workshops, community-building events, art shows, and ecological restoration. Rewilding means “to return to a more wild or self-willed state.” This encompasses a large spectrum of nature connection; from learning about native plants to full-on living off grid in the style of earth-based hunter-gatherer-gardeners. Resilience is a culture’s ability to withstand or bounce back from large scale environmental and social changes. Rewilding creates resilience because it is about getting the things you need to live from the land you live on in a regenerative manner, not extracted and shipped from thousands of miles away. Our goal as an organization is to provide a full-spectrum model of education and implementation; from students who come to a single introductory course, to partners of a collective using regenerative design land management principles to live off the land together.
