Field Guide: Healing
About the Workshop
Saturday, July 10 • 11AM – 1PM • Pre-Registration Required • All Ages Welcome • Free!
Explore the healing properties of the plants we’re growing in the first aid garden. Make first aid kits with balms, tinctures, and pickles. What medicines did our ancestors pass down to us? How did these medicines cross seas and soils? How might we harvest the abundance in our urban landscape? This workshop is led by Educators Jeannette Rodríguez Píneda & Kim Calichio of The Connected Chef.
