Bite Back: An edible invasives potluck!

  • Water Bar & Public Studio 2518 Central Avenue Northeast Minneapolis, MN, 55418 United States (map)

Join Friends of the Mississippi River & artists Kimberly Boustead and Emily Sauer for this free, fun night of learning, creating and connecting for the health of the river!

Bring food to share (edible invasive dishes encouraged, but not mandatory), your own plate and utensils, and an edible invasive recipe to contribute to our crowd-sourced invasivorism cookbook, designed by local artists and event hosts Kimberly Boustead and Emily Sauer. We're teaming up with Kimberly and Emily to hold this event at Water Bar & Public Studio (2518 Central Avenue Northeast in Minneapolis).

While we feast on homemade garlic mustard pesto, quiche and more, Friends of the Mississippi ecologist Alex Roth will tell us how garlic mustard and other invasives impact the Mississippi River and local ecology.

Get ready for invasive-themed art projects, awards for all, a Bite Back photo station and more. We’re excited to see what you cook up!

Please RSVP here so we have seats at the table for everyone. It's free! If you're under 18, we'll need your parent or guardian to sign a waiver. Questions? Email
