urbanforage (ongoing, 2006)

learn about the plants that share this city with us

Urbanforages are two hour informally guided walks through
the spontaneous and cultivated vegetation of the urbanscape. Along the walk, we learn to identify plants, hear their botanical histories and stories of their use by cultural use by animals and humans and share antidotes of specific experiences with these plants.

All Urbanforages start with an herbal beverage and end with a simple herbal food shared over discussion of the experiences and questions generated by the walk.

I have led Urbanforages since 2006 in Chicago and the suburbs including the cities of: Los Angeles, Montreal, Salt Lake City, Philadelphia, New York, Mexico City, Warsaw, Berlin, Baltimore, Port Townsedn, Portland, Detroit and Pasadena.
