      Meet the Trees with Falling Leaves: Identification and Relationship

      Would you like to come meet the trees in the beautiful Fall weather with beautiful Fall colors? Many of us walk past trees each day like complete strangers. We don’t know their stories or what they’ve seen. We might be out in the woods and see a huge wall of green, unable to pick out the individuals. No more - this class will set you on your way to developing a deep and meaningful relationship with the beings that we exchange our very breath with. Whether we realize it or not, we are deeply sustained by trees in all aspects of our lives. We sit on them, live inside them, burn them for warmth, and eat their fruits and nuts.In this class, you will be invited to get to know trees using all of your senses. You will learn the keys to identifying any tree you’d like and how to recognize it like a good friend.Next, we’ll talk about relationship with trees and ways to integrate them into our lives. We can eat trees, build with trees, make medicine from trees, use knowledge of trees to find wild mushrooms, and more. We’ll sample food from trees, share stories, and practice deep observation through guided sensory activities.You will learn a memorable number of specific trees that you’re likely to encounter in the environments of Western North Carolina and many parts of the eastern United States, and the role that ecology plays in the appearance of these trees in particular habitats.This class will be interactive and engaging and there will be plenty of time for questions! We will be walking on some uneven surfaces through woods and fields, but mostly on a mostly flat gravel trail for about 1 mile.Knowing trees can be a gateway to connection with nature, and a life full of learning and happiness. Are you ready? Registration ends October 17th. **Directions to our walk location will be sent in a confirmation email after you register and pay.
