Explore the herb lore of "medicine men" and "granny women" of Southern Appalachia. Pursue the tradition of wildcrafting as we search woods and fields for edible and medicinal plants. Next, we'll prepare the season's offerings for a delicious picnic, giving "local food" new meaning! Take home recipes, remedies, and gardening tips for "growing native." All levels welcome, but mobility is needed for sourcing plants in their natural setting. This class is featured in our "Passing On Appalachian Traditions" series, and is designed to connect highly skilled Appalachian craft instructors with present-day students. Instruction includes historical and cultural relevance, in addition to helping students understand, recognize, and practice traditional Appalachian skills and techniques.

Tuition: $630.00

The violet is called by a plural name, Dindaskwateski, meaning “they pull each other’s heads off,” showing that the Cherokee children discovered a game not unknown among their settler counterparts.  This is a game where the heads of the violets are interlocked and pulled apart by the stems.
