Incredible Edibles and Traditional Medicinals

Spend a day discovering how to identify plants and trees 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. The instructor shares the herb-lore from "medicine men" and "granny women" while the group searches 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, while the August experience explores the area around the Mountain Farmstead and Luftee riverside. (Tip: August is the best month for mushroomers!) Each session provides valuable insight into how early Native Americans and caucasian settlers found a bounty from which to live off the land.
