Herb of the Month: Japanese Knotweed
May 18th from 6-7pm
Japanese Knotweed (Polygonum cuspidatum /Reynoutria japonica) is a member of the buckwheat family. This plant is tenacious and often found growing in urban areas and disturbed soils like roadsides. The early shoots are a sour rhubarb-like spring edible, and the roots are powerhouses of healing gifts for the body. Because the roots can lay dormant in soil for years, and are hard to remove never intentionally cultivate or spread this plant. They do that well enough on their own!
To learn more about this incredible plant and ally join Jessica Churchill on Tuesday May 18th from 6-7pm for an hour of "all thing Japanese Knotweed"/materia medica. Jessica will share easy recipes for working with this plant.
