What You'll Do
When Patricia Kyritsi Howell eyes a plant on the verdant trails of the North Georgia mountains, she can appreciate its beauty like anyone else. But unlike most, she can also rattle off a number of possible culinary and medicinal uses for it. After a brief intro to the area's ecology, you'll venture out onto the trail for a leisurely hike. As Patricia delves into the uses of specific plants, you'll use jeweler's loupes and magnifying glasses to get up close with the specimens Patricia points out.
