About the Pestival

Did you know that the non-native invasive plant, garlic mustard, was originally brought to the U.S. by settlers from Europe because it's an edible herb? The name says it all! This pesky plant lurking in clumps in your backyard can actually be used to spice your cooking! The Friends and DeVries Nature Conservancy decided to take advantage of the tasty properties of this plant to host a localvore fundraiser, the annual Garlic Mustard Pestival. The Pestival is the culmination of our spring garlic mustard pulls. Removing garlic mustard from the woods at DeVries helps restore a native riverbank woodland along the Shiawassee River. You can support the removal of this invasive species by attending our 10th Annual Garlic Mustard Pestival, an evening of fine dining at the Wrought Iron Grill.


Please plan to arrive at 6:30pm. Dinner will be served at 7pm.
