Plant identification, ethnobotanical musings, and urban foraging in Berlin! This blog narrates our adventures in finding, identifying, and researching a variety of plants in the capital city of Germany. We are two expats who frequently wander through parks, along railroad tracks, or into the countryside in order to pursue our passion for exploring the natural world. We are especially interested in learning about medicinal and edible plants in the region, and are excited to share our adventures with you. Join us as we explore the abandoned spaces and untold histories of Berlin through the fascinating lens of botany!
[Disclaimer: Ultimately it is your responsibility to correctly identify plants in the wild if you are intending to harvest them. Check with multiple sources before confirming your identification, and remember the cardinal foraging rule: “if in doubt, don’t!”. Please forage responsibly… and enjoy!]
