Invasive Species Plate Lunch: Fish Fry + Art Show

June 11, 2023 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

Take part in New York’s Invasive Species Awareness Week and support native ecosystems, one delicious bite at a time. Enjoy some Jamaican-style fried Blue Catfish and/or some plant-based pasta featuring some of NY’s most invasive plants as part of this ecological and culinary experience!

Join us on June 11 at the Prime Produce Guildhall in Hell’s Kitchen as we explore the history, impact, and potential solutions to ecologically damaging invasive species. And, of course, we will do all this as we partake in one such solution: to eat them. 🙂

The featured ingredients include invasive fish (Blue Catfish from Albemarle Sound, NC) as well as a variety of invasive plants foraged right here in New York (Garlic Mustard, Japanese knotweed, Field Garlic, Purslane, and more!) In-person diners will also enjoy a special art show (with invasive species awareness as the theme) created by NY-based artists.

This event will benefit GROW Externships, a 501(c)3 nonprofit ecology fellowship for under-represented students and developing professionals.

June 11 (11am-3pm)

@ The Prime Produce Guild for Good (424 W 54 St, NYC)
