About the Event
The Southern Appalachian Mountains are home to an incredible array of plants, both native and naturalized. Join herbalist and wild foods specialist, Cara-Lee Langston of Wildcraft Kitchen for an all-day fall plant walk to learn learn the basics of plant identification, how to ethically collect wild plants, and safely use them for food and medicine.
They say that nature provides us with everything that we need to heal and be healthy. This seems evident as we transition into the late fall and winter, when our immunity may be most compromised. A mast year in the fall provides edible wild nuts rich in protein and healthy fats, immune-boosting turkey tails mushrooms appear in abundance, and white pine needles make a great vitamin C-rich treat to nibble on while we hike. Immerse yourself in late fall asters, listen to stories about pokeberries, and hunt for native persimmons - join us on the trails!
Location: We’ll meet near Downtown Clayton, GA and carpool to a local trail from there. Directions will be emailed to you the week of the walk.
