August 6 to 12 - Herbs of the Southern Appalachians

Teacher: Patricia Kyritsi Howell

Location: John C. Campbell Folk School, Brasstown, NC

Join Patricia Kyritsi Howell for a weeklong immersion into the many medicinal herbs found in the Southern Appalachian Mountains. This area is sometimes referred to as the "apothecary of North America" because there are so many plants here, both native and naturalized, with a long history of use as medicines, dyes, foods and more.

We'll spend time each day in field studies at the Folk School and in surrounding areas where you'll learn to identify herbs using botanical keys. And you'll learn about the historic and current uses of the area's diverse flora in lectures and discussions.

We'll also collect, press, and mount plant specimens to create an herbarium as a record of your exploration. Be prepared for outdoor foraging time, involving moderate walking (up to 2 miles at a moderate pace), and generally getting dirty as we get up close with the plants. 

Suitable for anyone interested in local plants, herbs and the ecology of the area.

Note: This class is offered through the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC.
