Using The Plants And Trees of the Cherokee
From the venue:
Mark Warren, owner of Medicine Bow Wilderness School in Dahlonega, GA has been teaching nature and survival skills of the Cherokee to adults and children for more than 40 years. He will give a slide presentation on how some of the most common native plants and trees were used by the Cherokee for food, medicine, insect repellent, crafts, shelter and fire. Mark will bring along some plants and handmade crafts for viewing and discussion.
Mark believes today's society can — and should — learn some valuable lessons and skills from those native people who inhabited the southeastern part of the United States hundreds of years before European explorers ever landed on its shores.
