SVT Garlic Pull and Program on Garlic Mustard Foraging and Tasting

Garlic Mustard: An Edible Invasive

Garlic mustard is an invasive plant originally brought to the United States by colonial settlers who used it for cooking. This noxious plant now requires vigilant control as it invades fields and woodlands, displacing native vegetation. Dispersed by wind and water, garlic mustard seeds spread quickly. Garlic mustard is particularly harmful as it changes soil conditions to inhibit the growth of most other plants.

Sudbury Valley Trustees (SVT) is holding upcoming programs that teach participants about garlic mustard management and its culinary benefits. On Wednesday, May 2 at 5:00 pm, participate in SVT’s Annual Garlic Mustard Pull at Wolbach Farm in Sudbury. Work alongside SVT’s stewardship team and learn effective strategies for controlling garlic mustard. On Tuesday, May 8 at 6:30 pm, SVT is co-sponsoring a Garlic Mustard Foraging and Tasting with One Earth Collaborative in Framingham. Participants will get their hands dirty foraging and then come together to prepare simple and flavorful recipes and discuss the spirituality of eating invasive plants. A $5 fee is requested to cover the cost of ingredients.

Registration is required and space is limited. For more information and to register, please visit www.svtweb.org/calendar or call 978-443- 5588 X123. SVT and nearly 3000 members protect and care for land and wildlife habitat in 36 communities surrounding the Concord, Assabet, and Sudbury Rivers. One Earth Collaborative, a project of Open Spirit in Framingham, seeks to deepen our spiritual connection to the Earth.
