We Learn by Studying Nature

On Wednesday, I along with several other members of the Sustainable Gwinnett Meetup group traveled to  North Georgia to learn about edible and medicinal plants of the Southern Appalachian region  from Susan Howell.  I could do a long post on the trip but suffice to say, you can learn a lot  by observing the undisturbed ecological reference (zone 5)  of your own bioregion with a knowledgeable herbalist as your guide. I have a small patch of zone 5 in my backyard; I’m definitely going to keep it intact.
