The Black Ecologies Workshop Series: Plant ID Walk 

Tuesday, October 19, 2021

Session 1: 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m. & Session 2: 1-2:30 p.m.

Haverford College Nature Trail, Haverfarm Entrance

Facilitator: Tiffany Johnson-Robbins, Clinical Herbalist, Raw Food Educator and Ethical Wildcrafter

Tiffany Johnson-Robbins will lead students and participants on a Plant Identification Walk around Haverford College Nature Trail. We will identify and learn the properties of wild edibles that are often considered invasive weeds. We will think through the ways Black people historically and presently find community with plants as sources of resilience and survival through many forms of forced and chosen migration and movement throughout North America.
