L.A. COMMUNITY VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO HELP CONTROL PLANT INVADERS!
Join with the Lakes Committee and some hearty neighbors for quality time with nature – as we pull and dispose of the invasive garlic mustard plants blowing and growing into our lands.
Meet us SATURDAY, MAY 12 from 10 a.m. to Noon-ish...
Gather at the upper lake Park Pavilion to pick up a site map of affected areas needing work.
Bring gardening gloves and yard waste bags, something to drink and your own refreshment.
Additional yard waste bags will be provided by the Lakes Committee.
WHY WE SHOULD CARE: Garlic Mustard is an invasive plant over-running many of our common areas and even sneaking into our private yards. It's aggressive, pushing out (toxic to) native plants and wildflowers, things you may have planted.
NOW is the proper time to pull it out – before it flowers, produces seeds and spreads. IT MUST BE REMOVED from the ground, not left as it will seed out after pulling. The Lakes Committee has identified several common areas where garlic mustard is growing now that we can work to clear. When you see it, please yank it out and bag it! It's biennial: 1st yr smaller, 2nd yr taller - rosette leaves with pretty white flower heads.
Here's what the plant looks like in early May:
