Workshops/Collabs

Common Knowledge works with other educational initiatives and community groups to host plant walks and workshops that engage children and adults in the incredibly rich language of wild edible species found city wide. Contact us today to see how we can work together!

 

May 20th, 2017 we had a table set up at GROW Brooklyn Festival for kids from the neighborhood to come color and chat with us about urban edible plants. GROW Brooklyn was conceived of by grass-roots community leaders from Garden Kitchen Labs to create a program of discovery, knowledge sharing and festivities. GROW Brooklyn "celebrates our diversity and empower visitors to adopt healthy habits and try their hand at growing and eating their own food". 

 

June 10th, 2017 we collaborated with Swale: A Floating Food Forest in hosting a plant tour to talk about species of edible plants which can be found city wide. We covered about 12 species which included tasting each plant. At the end we gathered for a discussion about the ethics and safety of harvesting urban edibles while enjoying an herbal infusion and tea tasting. Swale is dedicated to the education of food, agriculture and ecology through community engagement. Everything growing on Swale is edible and free for the public to harvest as nourishment. Swale docks it's floating barge at Brooklyn Bridge Park, Concrete Plant Park, Bronx, Governor Island, etc. See where they are now and find out more about the phenomenal workshops and events they offer by following the link below.
