Want to help the environment? Grab some plates and start feasting on invasive plants! There are many tasty recipes utilizing nonnative plants as their star ingredients. Join plant foragers Kevin and Diana as they discuss how garlic mustard, Japanese knotweed, stinging nettle, and other exotic species can be harvested, cooked, and eaten. Eat your way out of a bad situation and become an “invasivore” today! (Samples will be served.)
