HerbMentor Radio: Nathan Wright,
An Epic Chaga Foraging Adventure

When Nathan Wright hopped on our HerbMentor Radio call, he readily admitted that he wasn’t really in the podcast recording mood. And it totally made sense — after all, he had just returned from an epic adventure in the Michigan wilderness and was still adjusting to being back in the swing of everyday life.

And little did we know when we got on this call that we were in for one of the most fascinating stories ever told on HerbMentor Radio: the story of Nathan’s search for the tree that gifted him a 30 pound chaga mushroom decades ago.

Along the twists and turns of Nathan’s tale, we learned…

  • The true meaning of reciprocity with the plants
  • The benefits of chaga
  • What exactly is ethical wildcrafting and how to do it
  • What it means to be a caretaker of the land
  • And so much more!

  1. I’ve been a loyal customer for years now, of your books, Herb mentor, Wildcraft game, etc. I can’t imagine living without all that you share. No matter how much I know, there’s always more to learn.

    • Thank you so much, Terry!

      We’re so glad you’re here. :)

  2. I love this podcast, very interesting. I’m going to listen to plants and see if there talking to me. I always say hi to the trees in my yard in the spring and welcome them back and I tell them how beautiful they are in the fall and I try to soak in their colours to get me through the long cold white winter in Canada. Looking forward to learning more with all of you.

    • We’re so glad you love it, Judy!

      That sounds great!
