Parallel Walks: Foraging in the city! What is it? How is it done? And is it worth it? with Journei Bimwala
6:30 pm–8:30 pm
Lower East Side and Creative Time HQ
Join clinical herbalist and foraging practitioner Journei Bimwala on a short walk in the Lower East Side, focusing on the plants, weeds and trees that grow all around the streetscape. Within the short distance of a few blocks, visitors will look closely at urban greenery and learn to identify plants that are available for use in cooking, herbal remedies, and personal care. After gathering plants during the walk, visitors will return to CTHQ for a hands-on workshop on how to prepare these plants for everyday use.
About Parallel Walks
Join us for the first in a series of Parallel Walks, artist-led walks that take place in two locations, connected through a shared political, social, contextual, or geographic theme. The walks are the first of a new series of artist-led programming organized through Creative Time HQ, a forthcoming gathering space for art and politics opened by Creative Time.
