Wild Medicine Walk w/ Kelly McCarthy

Tuesday August 22; 6:00 PM – 7:30 PM  |  Clark Park

Join us for an evening stroll to learn about the medicinal properties of some common weeds and trees that grow in Philadelphia. Basic plant ID and foraging covered, no experience necessary!


Our guide will be clinical herbalist and educator Kelly McCarthy. Kelly brings years of training and a deep love for accessible medicine to her work. She runs her own business, Attic Apothecary, based in West Philly.


This workshop will meet at Clark Park in West Philly on the corner of 45th and Chester.
