Rabbit Hole Hollow
Yes, there are plants for foraging here in Nashville in February! The forecast for Sunday is mostly sunny, high of 53. It is cooler out here than in the city, so bring more warm clothing than you would need to in town.
This is an introductory level class on my rustic land. Many of the plants here are ones commonly found in Nashville lawns and unmown areas, thickets and woods. It is a great start to plant studies! We will speak briefly about several books I find very helpful and my copies will be on display for you to get titles from. We will talk about each plant's usefulness . We will see what is edible in lawn, meadows, and forest/thicket edges. We may look around in the woods a bit too depending on what my preclass scouting trip reveals is of interest in the woods. It is early in the year!)
Bring a way to record images, plant names and other notes. After the walk, I will mail attendees a list of the plants we find with their common and botanical names, to aid you in your studies. Seeing the plant on the ground is way different than seeing it in a book or the Internet. Once you know it on the ground, other information about the plant will be easier to organize in your mind.
This class is $10 per person (no charge for young people under 15 years old).
Be sure you sign in when you arrive so I know to send you the list of plants we see.
