      EVENT DETAILS
      Medicinal Plant Walk

      Organized by herbalist Patricia Howell, director of BotanoLogos School of Herbal Studies and led by various well respected herbalists in the region, our nature walks will explore the diversity of herbs and medicines native to the Southern Appalachian region, known as the “apothecary of the nation." Hidden in plain sight throughout the Foxfire center are a multitude of plants long valued for both their healing qualities and as wild edibles. On this guided walk, you’ll hear their colorful stories, and learn about role they’ve played in local history, folk lore and why we still use many of them today! Please wear appropriate shoes, as the walk will include a short hike through the property.
