Poisonous, Edible, Medicinal, and Useful plant workshops focus on learning to utilize nature's abundance. With over 1,600 flowering species in the Smokies, learning what you can eat, use for medicine, cordage, fire, and which ones to avoid can be a challenge. Join BigPig Outdoors as we venture off into the wilds to cut down the learning curve with our P.E.M.U. Workshops that will be offered in the spring, summer, fall, and winter.
Confucius once said..."I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand". Applying this wisdom to our workshops helps you develop a relationship with each plant, so you will not only remember it, but understand it's uses. We will spend the day foraging, sampling as we go, and end the day processing and tasting our harvest by the campfire.
Class size is limited and pre-registration is required. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
Required Gear - Notebook to sketch plants

We will be working off trail, so that means we may run into poison ivy, briars, bugs, etc. Wearing long pants, boots, and bug repellent is a good plan. Weather can always be unpredictable, so bring rain gear and clothing appropriate for the season.
