Invasive Plant Workshop Sat Oct. 8th, 10am-12pm

Join us for a fun and informative invasive plant educational session and work day in Haw Creek Park. We’re looking for 30 volunteers to help remove the “kudzu curtains” that have taken over trees and shrubs along Avon Road, along with invasives like English ivy and bittersweet that are creeping into the walking trails. 
Many Haw Creek homeowners are faced with the same predicament—fast-growing invasives from other parts of the world have settled in at our doorsteps and are choking out our native vegetation. As good stewards of our personal properties, and of our community as a whole, we will all benefit from this educational/experiential workshop offered by Asheville GreenWorks on Saturday, October 8, 10 am to noon.
 
GreenWorks will provide hands-on instruction, tools, safety gear to remove invasive plants including: multiflora rose, privet, bittersweet, english ivy and kudzu. Please bring gloves and your water bottle. We will be moving around the wooded areas so long sleeves and closed-toed shoes are recommended.
 
Participation for kudzu removal is limited to 30 so please register today at https://ashevillegreenworks.vomo.org/project/invasive-plant-workshop-and-workday. Everyone is welcome to attend and registration is not required to just listen and learn.
