10/12/19 Our Magnificent Trees: Tree Identification, Medicine and Folklore




Why don’t you take a day to step outside of the daily grind and reawaken your natural self?  We will spend the day outside in the woods, meadow, and yard exploring nature with specific sights set on our tall standing elders, the trees.  Autumn is a perfect time of year to learn tree identification using summer and winter idenfication tools.  We will share these tools and insights as well as stories of each tree, their specific food, medicine, folklore, and ecological connection with the rest of nature.  Our magnificent trees have so many lessons to teach us and we will enjoy taking the time to focus on just this.

In this class, we will be walking outdoors learning about the trees as well as making individual books to take home for future reference. Today’s pace will be slow in accordance with that from whom we are learning, our very patient wooden friends.  Its time to take a breath and reconnect.
