Alice Austen Education: Garlic Mustard Seed and Mugwort Scavenger Hunt in the Meadow with Aly Stofo of Glam Gardener

Glam Gardener hosts invasive plant workshops that teach people how to identify, craft with, and consume common non-native weeds. These weeds–like mugwort, autumn olive, and Japanese knotweed–are loathed by Parks departments, as they devote thousands of dollars in labor toward removing them from green spaces. Her workshops offer a different perspective on how we can relate to our environment. They combine ecosystems knowledge with arts, crafts, history, and sensory experiences to make connections impactful and memorable. It questions the concept of garbage, all while enabling citizens to do their part in the effort to remove invasive plants, that are disruptive to the native ecosystem.
