Cherokee County Center Foraging: The Hidden Harvest Thu May 26, 2016 Where:
NC Cooperative Extension Center for Applied Technology (CAT building) 2415 Airport Road Marble NC
— 15 hours away



The Cherokee County Extension Office is offering a second seminar on finding and identifying wild foods in and around the garden. Last May, over 25 people attended this hands on seminar and most wanted us to offer another one. The class will again be taught by Dr. David Cozzo, an ethnobotanist, specializing in the relationship of the Cherokee to their botanical world. He is an Area Specialized Agent for the North Carolina Cooperative Extension based at the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians Extension Center and is the Project Director for the Revitalization of Traditional Cherokee Artisan Resources. He also teaches courses and has published articles on the nutritional and medical ethnobotany of the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Indians.

The seminar will be held on Thursday May 26th starting 9:30 am at Tri-County’s Center for Applied Technology (CAT) building in Marble. “Many of the plants we call weeds are quite tasty and often more nutritious and hardier than the crops we are trying to grow,” states Dr. Cozzo. This talk will discuss edible plants that grow in or near the garden, as well as those that can be transplanted to other areas in the yard. After a classroom lecture, we will take walking tours through the community garden and local trails to find wild foods. There will be a fee of $10 per person for the class. Please call the Extension office 837-2210 to preregister for this seminar and for directions to the CAT building.

Creating Sacred Spaces

There are many ways that artists have worked with nature in art. This workshop will be an artistic based practice rooted in nature that is directly connected to self-awareness, nourishing and healing potentialities, and is appropriate for any skill level. Different methods of artistic expression will be used in the garden’s natural environment. Blending personal self-reflection with reflections on the many meanings of nature, participants and affiliated instructors will experience a variety of artistic processes in the context of the spirit, tactile nature, and diverse spaces within the gardens. Many of the activities can be repeated and utilized after the workshop.

This workshop will be led by Cape Fear Botanical Garden’s (Garden) Artist in Residence Ginny Sykes. Please dress for the outdoors and bring a bagged lunch.
