Join Piedmont Picnic Project at Prairie Ridge for a hands-on “Eat the Invasives” workshop on March 30th, 9:30 AM – 12 PM. Remove invasive plants from the grounds of Prairie Ridge and learn to eat, drink, and pickle what you pick!
We’ll be targeting blackberry shoots and leaves in this workshop – that’s right – more than just the berries are edible! After removing the plants, we’ll teach you how to make pickled blackberry shoots and blackberry leaf tea. You can apply this same process to many other kinds of wild and domestic plants!
Enjoy a sampling of many kinds of wild pickles and wild tea. Take home your own jar of pickled blackberry shoots that you help make at the workshop as well as recipes to make your own wild pickles at home.
Pre-registration is required, and closes at midnight, Thursday, March 28.
