Incredible Edibles and Traditional Medicinals
Appalachia's rich natural resources were a major incentive for both Native American and white settlements. Besides plentiful game, there were plants and trees they could depend upon for food and medicine. How did those wild foods taste? Did the medicines work? Knowledge is still useful today for those interested in alternative therapies, and organic cooking. Herb-lore of "medicine men" and "granny women" is shared while the class searches the woods and fields for its hidden treasures. Additionally, the June class explores the original route between Gatlinburg and Cherokee and a portion of the Appalachian Trail, while the August experience includes a look at early farmstead life and the possibility of edible mushrooms!
