CLASS DESCRIPTIONS

Shaping New Perspectives on Weedy Plant Species: Canadian Goldenrod and Wild Black Cherry

Erin LaFaive

Celebrate the wild black cherry (Prunus serotina) and Canadian goldenrod's (Solidago Canadensis) ability to successfully thrive in so-called "waste places" by learning research findings and historic uses. Many times, these plants are considered a nuisance in planned landscapes and agriculture settings. Shifting perspectives on how to use these plants may very well lead to value added products or a source for easily accessible plant therapies.
