Monday, August 29 • Recognizing Natural Food Webs
Grab a notebook and join Zaac, an organizer with the Connecticut-Westchester Mycological Association, on a guided tour of a bewildering and oft-missed nature within the city. We will seek to recognize an ecologically-sound nourishment from that 'invasive,' 'parasitic,' 'pest,' or otherwise unwanted plant and fungal life, ubiquitously found growing itself in spite of human intention. On our journey through Earth's own sustainability expect to find nutritious tendrils, sweet fruits, medicinal roots, and protein-rich mushrooms.
When & Where? 11am to 2pm. Meet at the stone benches at the Grand Army Plaza entrance of Prospect Park in Brooklyn. (Take the 2 train to Grand Army Plaza or the Q train to 7th Ave.) If the weather is iffy, call Zaac at (203) 571-8866 to check on the status of the tour.
