Garlic Mustard Pull
Time & Location
About the Event
This event will be held the Saturday of the What's This Plant Event week in May. We currently do not have a set time for that event because May weather can be unpredictable. Therefore we will not set exact dates until we know how early we can start the event.
This Garlic Mustard Pull event is open to anyone who either wants to help cull the invasive species or take it home with them to try in a recipe.
Why pull garlic mustard?
Introduced from Europe originally as a food plant, this species is now a serious concern in forests across North America. Garlic mustard is an invasive non-native biennial herb that spreads by seed.
What can I do with garlic mustard?
Just chop them up and add to soups, salads, tacos, stir-fries, and other dishes. It's easy and delicious! The leaves and flower buds are more bitter in flavor than the stem. The leaves taste like a cross of bitter mustard greens and garlic.
More information about the event will be posted closer to May.
