Join us on this Spring walk, as we meet some of the native plants that herbalists have traditionally used for food and medicine. We will discuss the apothecary botanicals that grow in the wilds of our urban parks and landscapes, spending time looking at the seasonal changes, learning plant id and the medicinal benefits of our weedy friends. Learn when to harvest and how to use what we find.
We'll meet at the Grand Army Plaza entrance to Prospect Park and exact meeting information will be sent a couple of days before the walk!
