About this group - Frank Cook's World - on Zoobird

(photo from the video "Frank Cook - Plant Walk - "Hemlock")

I've created this group to share what I learn about Frank Cook with you all and integrate what you know and learn. Some of you here at Zoobird knew Frank when he was alive. I'll help collect your memories of Frank here as we peruse his body of work. I hope you'll feel comfortable enough here to tell us what you learned from Frank if you knew him. 

It's going to be fun and an adventure! Join us! 

All the best,

Mike Levin

Frank Cook's World Reading List

About Frank Cook - Plants and Healers International

When we think of Frank Cook, world citizen, herbal extraordinaire, green wizard, botanical genius, Gaia-loving prophet of emerging planetary medicine and transition cultures, we feel inspired to connect with nature, eat something wild everyday, let our food be our medicine, practice simple living, show up on plant walks, make mead and create wild fermentations, and to love this one world rainbow family. We love you!

Botany Everday - Botany Everyday

The main inspiration of the website Botany Everyday is to carry on several threads of Ethnobotanist Frank Cook's work www.plantsandhealers.com while evolving a multi-spectrum understanding of the plant human interface from varied perspectives. The hope is that over time Frank’s vast community of people from different parts of the globe will contribute plant knowledge here for a holistic conception of the plant/human connection. For now marc williams marc@botanyeveryday.com is the main point person in building this site with the help of web designer Aaron Kaczmarek. However, people from places as varied as Costa Rica, Peru, Dominica, California, Florida, and New York have expressed interest in co-creating this web resource. It is important to note that financial resources from many friends of Frank Cook and students from the class held on the site here have made this website possible.Your continued support is encouraged and needed to carry out this important work.

Hi Michael,

Thanks for the invitation to this "Frank Cook's World" group. As you know, this is right up my alley. I would have liked to have known him. I just checked out one of his videos you posted. Very interesting. He discusses many of the same kinds of things I discuss with my groups on the river trips. Although everybody and every group has different levels of interest in this kind of info, but most enjoy hearing plant lore to some extent. Some like to hear it the whole way down the river! I'll be checking out more of those videos as time allows. Thanks again. Lars

Well, you and Mycol are the inspiration, Marc. I did a little digging and found Frank's website and lots of videos. So, that's enough to get a little dialog going here. Hope to see you at the Hostel in the Forest...lots of stories to tell, my friend.

Have you always wanted to make your own bread? Well, here's a little article about making rye bread with a bread machine. This bread machine came from a thrift store and only cost $11.99! The ingredients to make Russian Rye were so simple you won't believe how easy it was. Enjoy!
