Plant and Fungi Walk Jefferson National Forest Virginia (part 1)
We recently had the opportunity to live for two years right in the Jefferson National Forrest outside of Blacksburg, Virginia. Here I discovered the joy of taking plant walks — or herb walks. My plant walks consist of walking slowly through the meadow or woods–phone in hand to take pictures and look plant ID’s. Sometimes my daughter would join me.
I’m especially interested in edible and medicinal plants and fungi. The more I learn about medicinal plants, though, the more I learn that most every plant has its uses. Many of the uses are still undiscovered by modern medicine, but the knowledge of them has been passed down through the centuries and is being rediscovered. Learning about using plants for healing is an art that takes a lifetime to master. So what if I’ve started learning it in mid-life. I will pass on what I discover to you and to my kids and I’ll enjoy the journey along the way.
