Event description

Description

Even in an urban setting, we are surrounded by plants. Ever wonder which ones were, edible, medicinal, or perhaps even harmful? Join me on alternating Sundays all summer long, and build your knowledge of wild plants and their many uses.

This week I'll profile 3 different plants, then we will put our plant identifying skills to work as we search for them on the lot. Participants are encourged to wear long pants as we will be walking though heavily vegetated areas this week. As always the exercise will be followed by an informational walk and wild plant harvest!

Upcoming Walk Dates:
October 22nd

About the event: These weed walks act as a space to explore wild crafting in a safe environment. Part guided learning, part exploration; each walk will build on the discoveries of previous walks. $10 suggested donation. Drinks and sunscreen will be provided, feel free to bring snacks to share. Please consider arriving 10 minutes early to review waiver and get settled.

About the guide: Katya Herb, owner of Fecund fek'und Herbal Products, has been studying and working with wild and cultivated plants for several years. Inspired by her interest in creating plant based health and beauty care products, she seeks to share her knowledge with others while cultivating and furthering her own understanding of all things plant related.

About the host: The Cooperation Operation is a community organization that transforms vacant land into spaces for educational and economic empowerment in Chicago’s neighborhood of Pullman.

Notes about accessibility: While the gardening space itself is accessible, the road leading to it is unpaved and the porta-potty on site is not wheelchair compatible. The walk will accommodate the abilities of those attending. Please feel free to message Fecund fek'und to make any special arrangements. Additionally, the space is prone to experiencing harsh weather conditions such as full sun and high wind. Exposure to irritating plants, smells, and insects are possible.

As this event is outdoors, please check back day-of to make sure that it has not been moved or canceled due to extreme weather conditions.
