From our organizers:
Catch a (free) ferry and cooling sea breezes on a ride across the waves of New York Harbor to petite Governor’s Island. Diverse habitats – wild, cultivated, landscaped – offer an abundance of botanical interest. Native plants share space on the newly sculpted 70-foot hills with invasive edible plants, and we will discuss their relationship with one another, with us, and their environment. We will learn how to identify them all, talk about how to use them in our kitchens, and how, and why, to grow them, where appropriate. Our wild-inspired tasting picnic will be be enjoyed with spectacular views over the water.
The ferry leaves from Manhattan’s southern tip and from Pier 6 in Brooklyn Bridge Park every 20 minutes or so. Before 12pm it is free.
More information will be emailed to you in the week of the walk.
