Join us on the trail for our first plant walk of the season as the forest comes alive!
Bloodroot, mayapples, and trillium unfurl their distinctive foliage.
Fiddleheads spirals, clusters of wild violets and the tiny chartreuse flowers of blue cohosh line the forest trails.
Traditional Appalachian spring tonics – chickweed, dandelion, plantain, sochan, and bittercress – provide us with spicy nutritious greens that have long been used in Appalachian Folk Medicine to “cool the blood.”
Such an exciting time to be outdoors, especially after a long winter, and a great way to celebrate Earth Day!
About Our Plant Walks
We’ll meet at a central location near Downtown Clayton, GA, and carpool to a private trail or local farm.
We carefully scout out the most biodiverse locations the week of the walks to ensure the best experience.
All walks include a handmade wild foods snack. Please also plan to bring a bagged lunch on the trail. Email email@example.com to inform us about any dietary restrictions in advance,
and we will be happy to accommodate you.
Please wear clothes suitable for hiking that you don’t mind getting a little dirty, long pants
and closed-toe shoes (no sandals). Bring a picnic lunch, water, snacks, or
anything else you’d need to be comfortable walking around
for a few hours (walking stick, insect repellent, sunscreen, hat, raincoat, etc.).
