Walk With a Woodsman Series

Sonnewald Natural Foods is collaborating with Chad Redding to host a monthly Walk with a Woodsman series in 2024. There is a shared belief that the benefits of living gently on the land, foraging for wild foods, treating land and all life with respect and grace transcend generations, communities and lifestyles. Scheduled dates are April 13, May 11, June 8, July 13, August 10 and September 14, with Wilderness Skills from 9 to 10:30 a.m. and a Foraging Walk from 11 a.m. to noon. Redding is the proprietor of Ruck Rabbit Outdoors, which supplies an assortment of crafted, curated, refurbished and surplus outdoor gear.


Monthly topics include Wild Teas—collecting, identification and brewing; Firecraft—firewood selection, processing, tool use and more; Sheltercraft—low-impact shelters for emergency and camping, tarp pitches and ridgeline concepts; Bundle Bow and Traps; Water Gathering—handling and filtration; and Camp Lighting.


Sonnewald is concerned about the health of the planet and the impact of food choices, constantly seeking to carry as many locally and regionally produced products as possible.
