GPIP Presents at CIPWG Meeting

Glastonbury Partners in Planting was invited to speak at the November 20, 2013 meeting of the Connecticut Invasive Plants Working Group. Alan S presented our 2013 oriental bittersweet initiatives, which focused on ways to build a support base and create community partnerships, to control widespread oriental bittersweet infestation. He also discussed our three-level Work Day strategy and hands-on approaches to eradication, suppression and containment (see Work Day Strategies).

We are just at the beginning of our journey but hope the information that was presented will be helpful to other communities as they pursue their own efforts to contain this extremely damaging invasive plant.
