Episode 005 - Julie Martin on Connecting with Primitive Skills

Wild Plant Culture

Society & Culture

Today's conversation is with Julie Martin, primitive skills practitioner.Julie teaches ancestral skills ranging from fire-starting to herbal medicine at Practical Primitive, a school in Great Meadows, NJ run by Julie and her husband Eddie Starnater. It's a fantastic place to go for workshops in a vast array of different skills. I hope you enjoy today's conversation immersing in the forgotten fundamentals of human survival. Julie and I start the conversation by talking about processing acorns for food, a skill that she helped me with quite a lot. We also discuss fire and its elemental place in human life, communicating with plants, building community and nature connection through primitive skills, and a whole lot more.
