This Land/That Land: Urbanforage

Tuesday, Jan 31, 2017 4 – 5 pm

400 S. Peoria
Chicago, IL 60607

Led by Nance Klehm

Urbanforages are two hour informally guided walks through the spontaneous and cultivated vegetation of the urbanscape. Along the walk, participants learn to identify plants, hear their botanical histories and stories of their cultural use by animals and humans, and share anecdotes of specific experiences with these plants. All Urbanforages start with an herbal beverage and end with a simple herbal food shared over discussion of the experiences and questions generated by the walk.

The Ubanforage will meet outside of Gallery 400, at 400 S. Peoria St. 

Be prepared for walking and the elements. Attendees are encouraged to bring a notebook to jot down notes and a bag for collecting plant material.
