ENGLEWOOD — Nature and plant lovers can enjoy an event this weekend on the South Side.
Grow Greater Englewood, an organization that works within the community to create sustainable food economies, is teaming up with nonprofit Brown People Foundation to host a forage and plant walk 2-4 p.m Saturday.
Nature lovers can visit the Englewood Nature Trail, 5800 S. Halsted St., for a relaxing stroll through the hidden gem for a day of “learning, honoring and sharing amongst the plants and trees.”
Neighbors will learn how to find edible and medicinal plants and what they’re used for. There also will be interactive activities, like wildflower bouquet-making and seed exchanges. Residents can bring any extra seeds to share.
You can register for the free event here.
Nature walkers should wear comfy shoes and sleeves and pack a bag of bug spray, sunscreen and water. Masks are required, and social distancing guidelines will be followed.
