Urban Edible Plant Walk: NYC

Urban Edibles Walking Tour. Brooklyn, New York

Join us Saturday, September 29 11am-1pm for an Urban Edibles Walking Tour with Paige Dansinger.

As we walk though Williamsburg, we will look at the surrounding edible nature the we overlook everyday. Learn what plants you may include in your salads, stir-fries, and culinary delights — as well as, identify plants you would use in emergency or for survival purposes. Understanding how to identify and use edible and medicinal plants that grow in our immediate environments, between sidewalk cracks, planted in boulevards and planters, near libraries, schools, parks and public spaces will empower people, break dependency on industrial agriculture, open dialogue about urban hunger, offer a new relationship with the flora in NYC, — and create the opportunity to be the most fascinating person at the next dinner party!

We will be idenitfying and geo-tagging plants with iNaturalist. Please download this free smartphone app:
