The hidden gem of the Wyanokie Highlands, this Olympic-sized, stream-fed freshwater swimming pool is located in a wooded setting adjacent to the 5,400 acre Norvin Green State Forest.

Robin Rose Bennett will lead a group around the pool, identifying and learning about common plants that offer natural herbal medicine and delicious, nutritious food.

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”.

Herbs can be profound mind/body/heart/ soul healers when we approach them with respect and gratitude. In this class we will focus on how to prepare and use herbs in our everyday lives as well as in extreme situations. We will explore the use of common, easy-to-find herbs for: healing our hearts (e.g. lavender and roses); strengthening the body (e.g. nettles); soothing and calming (oats, motherwort, etc.); sharpening the mind and memory; recovering from grief, shock and trauma; uplifting our spirits; and cultivating spiritual awakening. We will also gain a wealth of practical tips for purchasing, preparing, and using herbs in teas, infusions, tinctures, oils, baths, and much more.

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 will share the physical and spiritual gifts of the 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.

This class will be held in Central Park. The class will meet at the north entrance of 103rd and 5th avenue. Please plan to arrive by 1:45 so we can begin on time.

This class is held rain or shine, so come prepared to enjoy the elements!
