NYC Parks urges caution during the snow storm predicted for Monday afternoon through Tuesday evening. Heavy ice and snow can cause hazardous conditions in parks, including falling branches and treacherous frozen park paths. NYC Parks advises New Yorkers to avoid using parks until Wednesday morning, when we will provide an update on park conditions.

Experience Life as a Plant

Sunday, May 18, 2014

12:00 p.m.3:00 p.m.

Please note: This event has already taken place. Please use the Search options on the right to find upcoming events.

Explore the life experience of a plant! We discuss basic botany, the science of plant life, and personal thoughts and feelings about plants. Then we will observe, contemplate, and create. Find a plant, meditate on its life and experience, and then create works of artistic expression (movement, sound, drawing, painting, poetry, prose, performance) based on our observations and imaginings. Finally, we will join in a circle again and those who choose to can share what has been created. This workshop is a celebration of human and plant life! All ages welcome.

You can come for one hour or all three. If you come for 1 or 2, please find us in the field. Materials will be provided.
