Garlic mustard volunteer workbees are finished for 2015! And thanks to our many volunteers for their cheer, enthusiasm, and dedication to stewardship.
With 26 volunteers each donating 3 hours of their lives, we were able to remove 43 large (30 gallon) bags FULL of garlic mustard from 11 acres throughout our 4 counties. The best thing is that of those bags, only about 10 went to the landfill; the rest were dried and sent to Paperworks Studio to be made into paper! Stay tuned for more information on how to get your hands on some re-purposed invasive species paper.
But garlic mustard isn’t only useful for paper! We treated our volunteers to a warm and hearty (and delicious!) lunch of garlic mustard minestrone and garlic mustard rolls after their hard and much-appreciated work.
Just because the workbees are done doesn’t mean we’re through with garlic mustard! ISN crews and partners all over the 4 counties are continuing to pull–get in touch and we’ll hook you up with folks doing great work!
Don’t miss out on the fun next year; we’ll be out protecting our fantastic habitats in May of 2016. In the mean time, there are lots of other invasives to keep us busy.
