Japanese knotweed, this aggressive plant is all around town. A group of us, The Inspire Coop are developing a small booklet to inform people how to control its spread. Japanese knotweed is edible, the young shoots especially. It is also reputed to be useful in the treatment of Lyme disease.
Goats are another form of natural control. No need to panic, information and education will allow us to seize the opportunity in this potential threat.
