    I am new to this group, but I am so interested to hear that knowledge! I am sorry to hear about your house, sending you positive vibes

    I have signed myself and my son (guest) to attend all three of your proposed classes, as they are incredible opportunities to learn very useful (but rarely available) information. Obviously, we would not have the funds to pay up front for the classes' entire cost, so I am hoping that arrangements can be made to pay as each session comes onto the schedule. Can this be arranged, and can we pay when we arrive? We live in Memphis and will have to drive to Nashville for the class. Thanks!

    I definitely want to learn new edible plants. I've gathered wild morels, polk, ginseng, berries, and dandelions since I was old enough to walk but I know there are many more great things I cannot identify. This class sounds perfect. I'll bring guests if I can.

    I have to check and see what my schedule is like. I may be out of town that weekend, but if not I may try and make sounds awesome!

    mostly confusion, first time here. I live in Chattanooga. Anyone from down here?

      Hi Janice, I live about half way between Nashville and Chattanooga.

  • Cindy

    When the time comes, there are so many people interested, there can be several schedules to accomodate folks. From here, looks like 2015. In throes of having to design, raise money, deal with aging parents, build a house, recovering from a house fire, no insurance! I have an architect who is donating his time, but I am having to act as contractor.. never done this before!

    I am excited to have a venue to learn about edible wild plants. I would also be interested in learning to identify edible mushrooms. We have several acres of that we have allowed to return to it's natural state. I'm hoping to be able to identify edibles in my own backyard (woods).

    February 13, 2014

  • Maria

    Looking forward to learn more about wild plants and edibles. Would also like to learn about identifying edible mushrooms.
    Thanks for the opportunity.

    I just want to be prepared for the apocalypse . . .
    Just kidding!
    I love the great outdoors, hiking, camping, fire making and making twine and rope from tree and other plant bark! Hibiscus "bark" is my preferred twine stock! Easy to do, but hard on the hands!
    Please keep me posted about meetups and hikes!

    I got a copy of Peterson's 1977 edition off e-bay. I would like to join a group of foragers, etc. (All those things you list in your "we're about" section.)

    Cindy, would you be willing to do consulting meanwhile - come out to our place near the Ellington Ag Center and show me a few tips? [masked]

    June 6, 2013

  • Jeanne

    Sounds like you're making good progress on the house Cindy. Since it's not a good place to sleep, are you sleeping at friends or relatives or something?

    April 28, 2013

    • Deborah W.

      You are a miracle woman. So glad to hear from you.

      June 1, 2013

    • Cindy

      Power pole up, internet hooked up. gave architect OK to draw up plans. Still some things to move out of house. Demo needs to be complete by end of June. Hopefully, it will happen next week! I want to have a funeral (memorial service) for the old house... so many memories. Settle the spirits...

  • Cindy

    Had a house fire over night April 17/18. So plant classes are put off for a while.

    April 22, 2013

    • Stephanie

      oh my! are y'all ok? is house habitable? need anything we can help you with?

      April 23, 2013

    • Cindy

      No, house not good for sleeping in. Have filtered running water and phone and dry places to store belongs. Have wood burning stoves to heat. No electricity. Are jumping through metro codes dept hoops to get temperary power pole. Have a travel trailer and box van camper on property and port - toilet from porta potty type company. Finishing up sorting and salvaging papers, photos, art, clothing, etc. Then on to other household items that are all tossed around in boxes with ashes, grit, and bits of rock wool. Nice that it is mild spring weather.

      April 26, 2013

  • Jeanne

    Aha, perfect! Four times is more than doable and the Petersen Guide is a good place to start. Yes, yes, yes. Very interested.

    April 14, 2013

  • Deborah W.

    Yes, Please!

    April 5, 2013

  • Cori

    Yes, if we can work the dates out - I've always loved the Petersen guides, and edible wild plants are a thing of mine, and have been for years. ;-)
