UPDATE: May 2, 2021, 1pm: Annihilating Garlic Mustard with WFTA



UPDATE 4/16/2021: Due to unforeseen circumstances (snow!), the Garlic Annihilation Clinic scheduled for tomorrow, April 17, has been postponed until Sunday, May 2 at 1 pm.


On May 2, come help us pull garlic mustard at 1 pm — and then stay for the 2 pm WFTA-Garden Club walk at the Town Green — registration for that event is separate and can be accessed from our home page.


Original post follows:


Join WFTA Trustee Kristin Barbieri and Conservation Commissioner Rees Tulloss for an outdoors tutorial on identifying and removing one of Weston's most persistent invasives.


If not removed, garlic mustard can crowd out important native plants. If removed properly, it can be made into a wonderful garlic mustard pesto, or fed to Rees' chickens, or your own! Come be a part of Earth Month in Weston!


No need to sign up — just meet out at the steps on the north side of Town Green. Bring a little shovel if you have it, your gardening gloves, and of course, wear your mask!
