From our organizers: Often in New York City, we are among medicine beneath our feet without even knowing it! Dandelions, clover, chickweed and mugwort creep through sidewalk cracks, following disturbed human landscapes and offering powerful energy to nearby living things. Join us to learn about common medicinal plants growing in the city, and discover ways to get involved in stewarding symbiotic urban ecosystems. This tour will take place outside, on a barge, so prepare for the weather!
