WALKING OVER MEDICINE: Edible & Medicinal Weeds of North Florida- Workshop led by Susan Marynowski
Sunday, April 15th, 10am-12pm
Prairie Creek Lodge

We will wander to examine the food and medicine that is right beneath our feet and over our heads! We will find, learn to identify, discuss, and sample common seasonal weeds -- both native and non-native -- that can be used for their nutritional and medicinal properties. The usefulness of knowing plant families will be discussed. We will also learn why it can be important to include wild foods in the diet. Susan would like to share with you her special passion for the edible and medicinal weeds of Florida!

Susan Marynowski (M.S.) grew up in north Florida. She holds degrees from UF in fine arts and wildlife ecology, with an emphasis in public education. Susan has pursued a passionate interest in native plants and has been a student and practitioner of herbal medicine for 20+ years, having studied with a number of nationally known herbalists. Susan is a member of the American Herbalists Guild and has a small herbal practice in Gainesville. She is also a sustainability advocate and strives to live in a way that has less impact on the Earth that sustains us all.

We will meet at Prairie Creek Lodge at 10:00am, and from there, hike the Kathy Cantwell Trail.
