Plants are generous healers and many important medicinal plants live where the most people are, so NYC is rich in a diversity of wild, nourishing medicines. We are likely to see and discuss healing plants such as plantain, dandelion, violet, goldenrod, yellow dock, and red raspberry, along with medicinal trees such as white pine, linden and hawthorn, and there are always surprises to delight us when we go out “weed walking”. Robin Rose has been plant walking in Central Park for nearly 30 years. She will share the physical and spiritual gifts of some of these and other plants, identification tips, best times for harvesting, and suggestions on whether to use specific plants as tinctures, oils, infusions, and/or food.

This walk will focus on how to approach these green healers with respect, gratitude, and an open heart as you invite the plants to share their teachings with you. The abundance of nature’s medicines in the heart of NYC will open your eyes and deepen and change your experience of living in the city.

Please note: This class will meet in Central Park, Manhattan. The meeting place will be given at registration.

Also note: This class will be held even with the possibility of light showers. However if there is inclement weather that prevents a walk, it will be canceled, registrants will be notified by email and either refunded or given credit for a future class.
