Woodstock Land Conservancy invites you to "Eat Your Invasives" at the Catskill Center's Thorn Preserve on Saturday, June 3rd as part of the "First Saturdays on the Trail" series.
This event will be led by Aemen Bell, who will be teaching tasty, creative recipes that use invasive species. She will demonstrate how to make pesto with garlic mustard and mugwort.
Aemen is a certified Western Herbalist, who also works with the healing power of foods. Before moving to Woodstock she practiced in NYC, helping over 40,000 people to heal everything from acne to candida to depression with herbs. She's delighted to share her knowledge of the abundant plants that grow all around us in our amazing, lush Hudson Valley.
Please RSVP for this event to ensure that enough materials are available.
Tick repellent, hiking boots, and sunscreen are recommended.
This event is free and open to the public.
