In 2012 I founded the Bay Area Spring Water, Wild Food and Vitality Meetup Group. If you’re in Northern California, join us! If elsewhere, start your own spring water/high vibe meetup group! Please SHARE the video below to help your friends up-level their lives with deeply healthful experiences and a supportive nonjudgmental health community!
The greater San Francisco Bay Area has many drinking springs: some flowing and accessible, many hidden and abandoned. Our community seeks to hydrate with these wild healing waters, learn about foraging wild edibles, and motivate each other to live lives rich in passion and vitality.
Join us so that you can enjoy: amazing wilderness adventure, spring water hikes, wild food walks, vitality food demos, cold spring restorations, hot spring pilgrimages, superfood party celebrations, organic potlucks, sustainable farm tours, and expert workshops! All welcome!
In this video, you’ll learn how to:
-Harvest pollen-producing pine catkins (male flowers)
-Dry the catkins
-Sift the pine pollen away from the catkin fibers
-Store your pine pollen
-Best way to consumer pine pollen when you run out
The San Francisco Bay Area needs more accessible drinking springs for the purpose of supreme hydration, vitality, ecology and reconnecting wild soul:
Out of the several neglected roadside springs, the Lagunitas spring seems to be the perfect fit for the first spring we restore. It will become the best and closest drinking spring for the San Francisco Bay Area.
Lat: 38° 0’44.81″N
The spring is located on the west side (uphill side) of Sir Francis Drake Blvd in Samuel P. Taylor State Park, 6 miles west of the Fairfax Community Church (Fairfax, CA).
Here’s a video I did in Janurary 2011 about other neglected springs in the Bay Area:
We can do it!

Make 2012 your year for extraordinary health,
In my new video, I show you my process of “going the extra mile” as I gather spring-fed creek water to fill my jacuzzi – one car load at a time – so that I can have my own “hot spring” hot tub in the privacy and convenience of my own back deck!
The concluding message of the video is to inspire you to work with nature in your own way and take extraordinary actions to create extraordinarily healthy environments for yourself such as:
~gathering local spring water in glass for your drinking water
~gardening using superfood seeds and wild seeds instead of just normal cultivars
~gathering local creek or spring water to fill a tub and create a “cold plunge” pool to create nerves of steel and circulatory system health boosts
~spending a few extra minutes each day preparing your favorite potent elixirs
~spending your free time going on wild adventurous hikes
~visiting hot springs
~learning about and hunt for wild foods in your area (only eat when identified by a wild food expert)
~scouting for un-mapped springs at the top of creeks
~seeking out the sun (at home or somewhere private in nature) to do some sun bathing (any time of the year!)
As always, I love your comments. What “going the extra mile” healthful activities are important to you? What are you inspired to do this year that you haven’t yet taken the time to do?
