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 Euorpean explorers ever landed on its shores. Join us for a discussion and slide presentation on the most common native plants and trees that were used by the Cherokee for food, medicine, insect repellent, crafts, shelter and fire. Mark will bring along some handmade crafts for viewing and discussion.
At the Donaldson-Bannister Farm, 4831 Chamblee-Dunwoody Road, October 10, 9:30-11:00 am.
$5 for DPT members. $10 for non DPT members. Limited seating, maximum 50. (We will be meeting under the tent located by the barns so that we can meet social distancing requirements.)
