King Chaga’s Kitchen ( Housed within, and providing a backdrop for,The Enchanted Cedar)
Described as the “Nut house” By some.
Manager/owner: Donna Wiser R.N.Wellness Educator, Weight management Specialist and life coach. I am a 58 year old Mother of five with a passion for youth. Married to Michael W. a Product Director for security software systems with a top secret clearance. Michael is also a master craftsman and home builder. Michael has lost over 100 lbs since I met him three years ago. I tell you these things about us so that you will know that we are not hippies or extremists.You may find me in a poncho and a pair of moccasins but I can rock a black dress and pearls when the situation warrants.
The inspiration for King Chaga’s Kitchen was my son Cody. At nineteen he was 100 lbs overweight with debilitating digestive disorders. He is now 22. His journey back to wellness exposed us to many things and forced me out of my pharmaceutical medicine box. There was no magic pill for Cody.
With the use of food as our medicine Cody lost 100 lbs and now experiences vibrant health. As a result of that experience we decided to establish a kitchen. Our own home kitchen right here on center street in a small town so that others could come and discover how we made that journey with food as our medicine.
Mission of King Chaga’s Kitchen: Advancing The Home Kitchen Apothecary. A discovery of how and why to “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” In a warm, inviting community based setting.
It is our goal to transform home kitchens into Home Kitchen Apothecaries, across the globe, one kitchen at a time.
HOW: It is our goal to do this by provide a learning and training center for traveling youth interested in sustainable living and wellness practices. During their internship the focus is on good nutrition, wellness, self care and a return to collaboration and community.
The four youth that are here currently, are working in the gardens, running the whole foods cafe and the food co-op, learning to teach the 12 Home Kitchen Apothecary concepts, building themselves simple dwellings out on Barefoot Five farm, and coming to understand a new currency of exchange based on community and collaboration.
The four youth that are here now are absolutely the most talented coolest youth on the planet. Beautiful spirits that will certainly deliver a message that it is COOL to be healthy and well education on good sustainable self care and the promotion of wellness. They are also musicians, writers and dancers. Grounded and balanced.

That is what we have going on here and we would love to collaborate with all of you.

Stay Grounded,
Donna Wiser aka Branch

“Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food”
