Anybody who knew Frank Cook knew that he liked to walk…a lot. In 2001, Frank walked across North Carolina from Little Washington to Max Patch on the Appalachian Trial, and from one side of California to the other in 2002. Plants and Healers International (PHI) would like to post information and be a clearinghouse for anybody interested in walks of the epic pilgrimage sort in Frank’s tradition or simple plants walks in the city or countryside where you live.
To share information on upcoming walks, go to: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Frank-Cook/88981199010?sk=events.
If you know of individuals or groups walking the Green Path, let us know. We can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
