Enjoy a beautiful walk in the backyard of our school classroom along the Cady Way Trail, to identify edible and medicinal plants growing all around us. Join us for a walk in the suburban wild of Central Florida to discover medicinal and edible plants that are growing all around us. Get to know the plants in our ecosystems that are likely common in your own backyard, and explore their ethnobotanical uses!
Along the hike, edible plants and trees are taught as we meander through untamed wild areas of Winter Park near our school. Enjoy a discussion about each plant we stop to admire, whether edible or medicinal, with instruction on how to identify each species. This hands-on walk encourages sensory connection with each plant, in a fun and practical way to make the experience educational and enjoyable.
The hike is easy and the landscape is fairly level, with many stops along the way. Well-behaved children are welcome as students. Most hikes cover 15-20 different species which vary depending on the season of the year. During the hike we will cross through different ecosystems, so you can get a feel for the diversity of Florida’s landscape.
