Weeds and Herbs Walk with New York City Parks Department GreenThumb

  • Pa'lante Community Garden 1651 Madison Avenue New York, NY (map)

Dandelion, burdock, violet leaf and ground ivy: just a few of the plants we've all encountered growing in our school and community gardens in between the rows of neatly cultivated tomatoes, carrots, and brassicas. Unwelcome as they may seem, these plants have been valued for centuries as medicines and sources of wild food. In this workshop, we will develop our plant identification skills and an appreciation of the healing plants—often discarded as mere weeds—that grow abundantly all over our city.
