Exclamation Louisiana Edible Plant Class



Advertise Here

I just found this guy thanks to "StraightRazor". His name is Charles Allen, he is a guy who wrote a edible plants book; Edible Plants of the Gulf South by Charles Allen. He also does wildflowers and butterflies.
I am looking for some people who are close enough to this area to take the class. It is around Central Louisiana--Alexandria--Leesville.
I just spoke with him on 8-19-10 at 12:50 CST. Dr. Allen has a brown bag lunch class at Ft. Polk--Leesville-- on September 23 at 11:30am, but it is only for a hour. He stated he has two free Saturdays; one is September 18 and October 2--The class would be from about 8 or 9 to 12 or one or so. We would walk/hike for part of the class and some plants he would have on a table for us. If we can get at least five people. Let me know here in this post or PM me.
Thanks JP

Below are some web sites and information on Dr. Allen.

This is actually very useful for me. I'm personally from Louisiana. Wild game is actually plentiful in the bayou (especially crawfish if you know how to catch them). So personally for me I have never had to resort to edible plants. However I'm living in Oklahoma now and my knowledge of the terrain and wildlife here is minimal. If you know a good book on the midwest plains, it would be very helpful.

I would be interested in doing this on a weekend because I work during the week. I'm from DeRidder but live in Lake Charles now. Can't send a private message because this is my first post. You can reach me at [email protected].
