Wild Medicine Herb Walk  On behalf of Med NYC:

 is not-for-profit and run by volunteers. Find out how you can get involved.

From the 5th – 8th September 2019 we’ll be getting NYC excited about medicine through a diverse program of experiences, exhibitions, talks and activities. From behind the scenes tours of hospitals and specifically curated exhibitions, to talks from world experts and hands-on technology demonstrations – there’s something for all ages and interests. 

About the Walk: Summer and Fall are the perfect times to meet the native plants that herbalists have traditionally used for medicine. Led by expert herbalist Dawn Petter this walk will offer the opportunity to discover the apothecary botanicals that grow in the wilds of our urban parks and landscapes. You’ll learn how to correctly identify, when to harvest and how to use what we find for food and medicine.
