This workshop is in collaboration with the Institute of Economic Botany at The New York Botanical Garden and will be given in English and Spanish. What plants do you grow and use for food, medicine, and healing?

Participants should come to this workshop with cuttings of plants they use for healing purposes. We will share plant-based remedies as community gardeners do in the Bronx. We will also serve herbal teas (and share recipes) made straight from the garden!
