• Challenges and Opportunities with Exotic Invasive Plants

Speaker: Marc Williams.  This class describes plant family patterns and their applications to exotic invasive plants for food, medicine and beauty. A review of the ethnobotanical literature helps us learn how to employ these plants and effectively make use of a problem by turning it into a resource. We identify and take an in-depth look at some of the prime species of medicinal plants occurring on the Blue Ridge Assembly property, and then discuss a more general useful exotic invasive plant list of over 150 species from the eastern United States. Catalog number 18ME08
