The goal of APFM is to promote traditional plant knowledge and ethical harvesting. As the reliance upon imported foods has increased over recent generations and as educational dynamics have shifted, a gap in the knowledge, skills, and practice related to Alaskan plants as food and medicine has widened. This year’s symposium will provide opportunities to share traditional knowledge and promote healthy lifestyles.


By attending this symposium, participants will be able to:

  • Describe how to sustain more natural resources by connecting with culture, environment, and increase self-sufficiency.
  • Employ best practices and knowledge for a higher intake of nutrient dense foods.
  • Identify ways to engage in higher levels of physical activity.
  • Identify ways to improve mental health and overall well-being.

We look forward to an outstanding and celebratory gathering. Can’t wait to see you there!
