Foraging for Food & Farmacy
Spend a day discovering how to identify plants and trees that Native Americans and early settlers used for dye, food, medicines, crafts, and other items of daily life.
Sample delicious wild flavors appropriate to the seasons. Your instructor will share the herb-lore from “medicine men” and “granny women” as you search the woods and fields of this temperate rain forest for its hidden treasures.
In addition, the June experience explores the original route between Gatlinburg and Cherokee and a portion of the Appalachian Trail.
