Magic has always been the tool of the disenfranchised, and historically witches have always learned how to work with their surroundings and manipulate the building blocks of their environments to suit their needs and desires. In the anthropocentric age of climate change human needs and desires are drastically altering ecosystems and landscapes. Invasive species in particular have been devastating to environments, contributing to a loss of biodiversity along with many other localized issues - but any witch worth their salt knows that a problem can more often than not be worked to their advantage with the right knowledge.
Join hedgewitch and environmental scientist Rowan Alexa in a practical workshop that will give you practical knowledge on practical magic utilizing various invasive species in the New York City area. Bring a notebook and pen and come away from the class with a list of plant allies and recipes, foraging and harvesting tips, and resources for further research and knowledge.
