Dandelion, burdock, violet leaf and ground ivy: just a few of the plants we've all encountered growing in our school and community gardens in between the rows of neatly cultivated tomato, carrot and brassica. Unwelcome as they may seem, these plants have been valued for centuries as medicines and sources of wild food. In this workshop, educators and gardeners will learn ways to help young people develop their plant identification skills, and an appreciation of the healing plants—often discarded as mere weeds—that grow abundantly all over our city.

Facilitated by Jessica Turner, Harlem Children's Zone; Grow to Learn; and GreenThumb

Throughout the month of July we will be highlighting community gardens that focus on ornamental plants as part of Botanical Month.

America turns 242 this year, and even if we start counting from the arrival of the Dutch in 1642, New York City is less than 400 years old — a baby by global standards!

As a burgeoning metropolis in a young republic, 19th-century New York sought to strengthen its position in the world by connecting itself to history—especially Ancient Greece, regarded as the birthplace of democracy. From these efforts, the Greek Revival style of architecture was born, linking New York to the glorious “Golden Age” of Athens in the 5th century BCE.

Join us for a walking tour focused on Greek Revival architecture in the neighborhood of the 1832 Merchant’s House Museum, itself an example of this powerfully symbolic style. Along the way, we’ll learn about the specific features of Greek Revival and compare the realities of Ancient Greek civilization with the ideal presented in 19th-century America. Enjoy Greek nibbles in the garden.

5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. – Walking tour #1
6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. – Reception in the garden of the Merchant’s House Museum
7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. – Walking tour #2

Co-sponsored by the Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation.
