Jun 23: Knotweed dinner and demo event

Enjoy some creative, locally-sourced grub from Chef Chad Townsend from Salt of the Earth this Monday at Bar Marco as part of their No Menu Monday series.

This dinner is inspired by GTECH's Knots on Lots project, which experiments with finding a productive, beneficial use for the nuisance, invasive, ever-present plant,  Japanese Knotweed. 

It will be an evening of Knotweed - local fiber artist, Albert Pantone, will be demonstrating paper making techniques, GTECH will have knotweed biochar on display and some knotweed may make it into a dish or two. 

GTECH works to turn waste into assets for communities. Proceeds raised from the evening's sales will go towards funding innovative vacant land projects in Pittsburgh neighborhoods. 

5-11 p.m. at Bar Marco (2216 Penn Ave, 15222).  For reservations for the evening's event, please contact Bar Marco at 412.471.1900.
