About the campground

The Campground is an organic teaching garden and Pagan sanctuary. It is the home of Witch Academy and Practical Witch. The name of the sanctuary is Wind ‘n’ Wood—said as you would “rock n roll” or “fish n chips.”

Our mission is to show how abandoned, abused, and deserted places can be recovered and flourish. Just like people. The sanctuary is here to preserve the land and create a natural area for Pagans and Witches to gather and worship in a safe space, in harmony with nature. Proceeds from campsite reservations go directly to the property to build shelters, expand the foodbank orchard, and mow camping and ritual areas.

Wind ‘n’ Wood sits on 10 acres of land where herbs such as yarrow, mugwort, wormwood, and passionflower are grown for use in ritual incense, teas, and other magical creations. The growing method does not look like an ordinary garden because the sanctuary is an experiment in integrated cultivation (rather than monoculture cropping). The property is also a demonstration of the Earth’s incredible ability to heal itself quickly with a little human assistance. It was logged around 25-35 years ago. When the property was obtained, only pioneer and secondary species of plants could be seen, and now tertiary species and rare Ouachita natives are present.

Commercial hog farming created EPA violations that were lifted only a year after the sanctuary was created in 2012. If you’d like more information about land recovery using phytoremediation (plants) and mycoremediation (fungi) techniques, your host will be happy to share ideas and resources. One acre still houses the concrete slabs from two barns. This area is restricted as there may be rebar sticking out of concrete, along with uneven surfaces.

There are a few small fenced areas marked TEST AREA that should not be disturbed. If you’d like more information about what is being done in these areas, just ask your host (but be warned, she’s a plant nerd and may talk your ear off).
