Native Plant Week: Day 6
June 12 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
Join us for Native Plant Week, a six-day event celebrating the rich diversity of plants in Appalachia! Saturday, June 12th, will feature a wild foods cooking demo with Cara-Lee Langston of Wildcraft Kitchen and an afternoon herbalism demonstration with Patricia Kyritsi Howell of BotanoLogos School of Herbal Medicine.
Transform early summer herbs into healing remedies! Herbalist Patricia Kyritsi Howell shows you how to recognize, harvest, and use an array of herbs from wild and cultivated places, and shares tips for how to use herbs safely and effectively for good health. Patricia Kyritsi Howell, the author of Medicinal Plants of the Southern Appalachians, is an herbalist and teacher based just down the road from Foxfire. Her herb school, the BotanoLogos School of Herbal Studies, is Georgia’s oldest herb school offering online herb classes and field studies.
