Invasive Bittersweet: Bird Feeder


with Zack Rouda

Calendar Dec 10, 2022 at 10 am, runs for 1 week

So-called "invasive" or round-leafed bittersweet is a creeping vine with inedible berries that is considered invasive in North America. Frustrating to gardeners and arborists, and not readily favored by birds, bittersweet is a largely useless bane on wild land. We can use traditional harvesting techniques to tend invasive bittersweet in the wild: harvesting material for baskets while controlling and suppressing future damaging growth. Learn to make a beautiful woven window feeder for birds! We'll cover identification, collection, processing and storage, and creation, including the basics of stake-and-strand waling and randing weaves.

Disclaimer: 1. Invasive Bittersweet plants used for this class are non-seed bearing shoots harvested from private property and 2. The bird-feeders made during this workshop cannot be used for commercial purposes.
