High Park Stewards – Garlic Mustard Busting – Sunday, May 24th

Posted on May 19, 2015

The High Park Stewards have been removing Garlic Mustard from a number of sites within the park for many years. Protocols on how best to control GM are changing all the time and we are always upgrading our skills.

We are able to notice a real positive effect from our work but there is still lots to do.

A small group will be planting in the Boulevard Beds.

As many people as possible are needed as there is no end of this plant in High Park. Celebrations Invitation
