This one's for the good folks who came out to Evergreen's "Weeds 101 Workshop" at the Brick Works today.
- the main invasive plant management strategy recommended in the workshop was: "Recognize. Remove. Dispose. Remediate. Replant. Return." Read more about it here
- most of the invasive plant resources mentioned in the workshop are posted here
- Dog-Strangling Vine (DSV) merits its own post
- we also touched on High Park's experience with DSV, including glyphosate / Round-Up, as well as glyhposate laws in Toronto
- and how Garlic Mustard is changing our forests by reducing the mychorrizal fungi in soil.
- also, as stewardship co-ordinators Claire from Evergreen and Sharon Lovett from High Park mentioned, a great way to learn about invasive plants is by joining a local stewardship group
- if you want to stay-in-the-loop about future workshops and events not only at Evergreen Brick Works but throughout our area, please check out the links under "Events, Workshops, Field Trips, Volunteering " in the right side bar
- In that same long list of links on the right, you can also find some good advice on how to plan a native or naturalized garden under "Native plant gardening & naturalization: how to's & plant recommendations" as well as where to buy ethically propagated under "Native plant nurseries & sources" too.
"It is not for you to complete the task, but you must begin."
Thank you again and please post any questions, info or links to pics from this afternoon in the "comments" below.
