Make a Knotweed Flute

$32

with Zack Rouda

Calendar Mar 4, 2020 at 5:30 pm, runs for 1 week

Creatively repurpose invasives! Japanese knotweed is an abundant and frustrating invasive. If you’re seeking non-chemical responses, explore creative, out-of-the-box ways to put this plant to use: its young shoots are edible, its roots may be used to fight Lyme disease, and its stalks, resembling bamboo, can be fashioned into a functional musical instrument. Cover identification, best gathering practices, materials storage and processing; use knives, wood-burners, rubber bands and string to make 1-2 types of flutes. All materials included. Zack is Director and an instructor for Rewild Maine, an educational nonprofit promoting nature connection by teaching small-scale, place-based living skills; partial proceeds benefit Rewild Maine.
