Riverbank health & delicious pesto!

Garlic mustard is an invasive herb native to Europe. It spreads quickly, interfering with the growth of other plants including several species at risk. While it is not a good food source for wildlife, it is high in vitamins A and C, and it makes great pesto. Join us to learn about the plant and how to safely pull it. You’ll contribute to the health of the river bank, and leave with some ingredients for your very own delicious pesto!

Please bring your own containers. ALL WELCOME. This is a family-friendly event.
