Ethno-botanical walk – searching for botanical treasures among the ruins: Aptera 2nd March

New botanical walk with the botanist of Phytosophìa for March!????????‍♀????

This time we will delve into ancient ruins  looking for and studying  plants with ethnobotanical value (i.e. which have been used by local populations, for medicine but also as a source of food or even for other uses – since they are toxic or have particular characteristics! ) but of which we will also deep the properties confirmed or discovered by modern science, in a semi-natural environment rich in plant species, where the past foot of human being becomes poetry! 
As always we will study the botanical part (characteristics for correct recognition) aided by the booklet, that you will receive and take with you, written by your guide, containing the botanical data sheets of the species present in the area (also containing the medicinal/edible properties of many species!), but we will undoubtedly also use our senses  and myths & stories so you can remember them easily 

WHERE: We will walk among the ruins of Aptera, an ancient Cretan city-state located in Apokoronas (between Chania and Rethymno), with a magnificent view of the Souda bay!

WHEN: Saturday 2 March, h. 11-13 am (metting at 10:30)
???????? This time we’ll do “only” the study of the plants through the botanical walk (no workshop)

????Easy route, suitable for everyone (even children)

???? Limited places (for a fruitful learning).

I'm Austrian living in Tavronitis, love nature, music, good books, sunsets, the sea, travelling, socializing and more. I came to Crete as a student in the early 70s, exploring the west and southwest of the island with friends by motorbike. When you are young everything is important and, there are lots of things to do...I did. Job, family,children, travelling the world. But I never lost my love for Crete for a minute. And seven years ago I ended up in this convenient corner of Crete, not only for holidays, but to stay and haven't regretted it for a minute.
