Weekend To-Dos: Eat It, Hon.

June 25, 2009

Food food food.

It tickles our taste buds and riles our our inner activists. It has developed from rummaging through the bushes for some spare berries to the intricate delicacies made famous by Alinea, so technologically advanced that WIRED wrote a feature on them. And this weekend, we get to explore every aspect thereof.

Trust me, its food.

Trust me, it's food.

Bees in NYC

Just Food’s Pollinator Week has been in full swing this week, a week of celebration and advocacy for everyone’s favorite bug – the bee. Not only can your weeknight night bar crawl involve honey-infused drinks across New York City, you can also suck it up on Friday at Union Square Green Market with tastings and other honey business.

All week long at various locations
Friday all day at Union Square

Eat It, Honey – Kids + Food Politics + Film + Park

What’s On Your Plate? is a film that follows two NYC kids as they discover their place in the food chain.

Eat It, Honey – Urban Foraging in the Park

How often have you been strolling through our city’s fabulous parks, looking at the beautiful foliage and flowers, and wondered, hey, can I eat that?

Even if you answered, um, never, that’s nasty, let it be known that our parks are full of edible plants. And on Sunday, Green Edge Collaborative is hosting a little trek through Prospect Park to identify those plants and fill you with the knowledge that if the economy crashes and burns anymore, Whole Foods goes out of business, and local farmers succumb to agro-businesses that only grow GMO soy, you’ll be able to survive by foraging in the park.

Meet at Grand Army Plaza Gazebo, Prospect Park
