Wild Weed Wednesdays in Pittsburgh

When: Wednesdays in September, September 8, 15, 22 from 6-7:30 pm. With a rain date for September 29th
Where: Pittsburgh City Parks
Who: Michelle Soto 
Cost: $15 per class or $40 for all three

Come out for a series of plant walks that focus on identifying late summer weeds, their edible and medicinal uses and how to encourage some of them to grow in your own garden. We’ll meet at a different Pittsburgh City Park each class- locations will be emailed to you after signing up. This class is aimed at anyone from a beginner to a wild weed forager and chef. Michelle brings a unique perspective about wild tending, the ethics of wildcrafting and medicinal uses from a western clinical and energetic perspective.

Accessibility: We will provide as much information as possible about the terrain and environments that we will be visiting in our email to you after this form. Plant walks are often slow meandering walks and involve standing or sitting in areas for up to fifteen minutes before moving on to the next wild sight. We will provide details to everyone along the route of how far each portion of the walk is and where and for how long we will be stopping for discussion.

Be Prepared: Make sure to wear comfortable waterproof shoes, enough warm clothing and bring a chair or blanket for sitting. And if you have a favorite plant identification book, bring it along- we’ll be referencing Michelle’s favorite “Newcomb’s Wildflower Guide” and we’ll have some for sale each class too if you fall in love with this easy to use guide.
