This session is organized in partnership with Weedy Resistance, and will focus on observing and mapping the local flora of Red Hook.
Join us at 6:30PM for a weed walk by Christopher Kennedy (meet at the garden gates at Pioneer / Conover Street).
At 7:30PM, we will meet in the garden at Pioneer Works and participate in mapping activities to chronicle the ecological landscape and plant (human, animal) population of Red Hook.
About this roundtable series:
Explore the ecological history, present and future of Red Hook’s landscape; from a red clay estuary, to a thriving port, to a community exiled from the rest of Brooklyn, and soon to be accessible by public ferry. Land stewards of Red Hook will share stories and imagine how we can band together to promote a resilient ecological future in our neighborhood, with a focus on taking away some action items from each of these sessions. All sessions are all ages, come with ideas, questions and a will to collaborate!
