Inwood Mid-Spring Walk
Saturday 17 May, 12.30pm - 3.00pm
The woods of Inwood, at Manhattan's northern tip, have changed a lot since early April. They are fully leafed out, fresh green, and bursting with edible plants.
Expect to see edible and invasive pokeweed shoots, mugwort, Japanese knotweed and field garlic.
There will also be succulant greenbriar, wild grapes and the elusive and brutal nettle, as well as many other wild edibles and indigenous wildflowers.
Our walk will take us up the hill, along the top, and down over the Hudson River. Learn to ID poison ivy and where to find its country-remedy antidote, jewelweed.
Bring water and a snack, although one will be provided (either the field garlic cheese bread below, biscuits or perhaps a sweet, Japanese knotweed loaf).
Field garlic cheese bread
We meet at 12.30pm sharp at the entrance at Seaman Avenue and Isham, returning there by 3pm. The closest subway is the A to 207th. More details for confirmed walkers closer to the time.
