Brooklyn Bridge Park Walk

Monarda (bee balm)

Due to incoming storms, June 23's wild foods walk has been re-scheduled for next Tuesday.

On a stroll from Pier 1 to Pier 6, come and discover the wild edible plantings of Brooklyn's most botanically rich and Northeast-native inclined park. It has the best view in New York, too.

Beyond the bog

Sassafras and blueberries, cattails and spicebush, bayberry and sweetfern, sumac and sweet serviceberries (pie recipe in  66 Square Feet - A Delicious Life), here is an outdoor classroom that allows us to spot and identify a wealth of indigenous wild edibles.

Afterwards there will be a botanical tipple or two.

We meet in the park at 5pm at Pier 6, at the extremity of Atlantic Avenue, see map link: look for green markers.

The closest subway is at Borough Hall, a 15 minute walk away.

The walk will end on the lawns at Pier 1, where we will enjoy our snack and botanical cocktails. From there you can walk to York Street or Clark Street subways, or go on to dinner at Vinegar Hill in Dumbo.
