Event Description
Learn how to help Indiana’s forests and please your taste buds at the same time at a garlic mustard workshop, April 30, at Paynetown State Recreation Area at Monroe Lake.
 
The three-hour Garlic Mustard Gourmet Workshop starts at 1 p.m.

The workshop is limited to 12 people, and registration is required by April 25. The cost is $5 per person. Register by calling (812) 837-9967.
 
Garlic mustard is a non-native, invasive plant that is crowding out native plants and threatening the ecosystem. However, garlic mustard is also a delicious culinary plant that can be incorporated into standard dishes. This makes pulling garlic mustard a win-win.
 
Participants will learn to identify and remove garlic mustard. They will then prepare and consume dishes that feature garlic mustard.

The workshop is recommended for ages 14 and older. Carpooling will likely be required to and from a nearby area to harvest garlic mustard.
 
The Paynetown SRA entrance fee will be waived for registered workshop attendees.

Paynetown SRA on Monroe Lake (stateparks.IN.gov/2954.htm) is at 4850 South State Road 446, Bloomington, 47401.
