Beginner Botany & Plant walk

Date(s) - 06/09/2018

Binghamton Urban Farm

There are so many plants out there… in our yards, gardens, and even growing out of the sidewalk. How can we begin to identify them? This workshop will cover basic plant structures, function, and terminology. Participants will learn key traits we can look for to distinguish plant groups, best times to look for different traits, and how to use field guides to identify some of what we’re looking at.

This workshop will be two hours long – one hour of lecture and questions, and an hour long plant walk where we can put some of what we just learned into practice!

Optional: If you have them, please bring a magnifying glass or loupe and a flower/plant field guide. If you don’t have either, we will have some for use during the class. If you are interested in purchasing a book to complement what will be taught in the workshop, recommended texts include Botany in a Day and Newcomb’s Wildflower Guide-but there will be plenty of learning with out the text.

*This workshop is free and open to gardeners of all levels. A donation of $5-10 is suggested.

This event will be held at the Binghamton Urban Farm, 16 Tudor St. from 1-3PM.
