Outing Description:
The Southern Appalachians are home to a dizzying array of plants with a long history of use as medicine and wild foods. On this hike (which will be more of a meander, as we’ll be stopping frequently), we’ll look at the herbs of spring, interweaving their history with their modern uses.

Meeting Place Directions:
Piggly Wiggly Grocery Store, Dillard, GA. Look for us in the parking lot in the row closest to 441
