Invasive & Unwanted Plants

Some plants are labeled as 'unwanted' or 'invasive'. But who decides which plant is wanted and which plant is unwanted? Who creates the maps that dictate where certain plants can and can't grow?

The concept of an unwanted plant touches upon the issues of immigration that we are facing globally, beyond gardening. And the notion is intertwined with balance and harmony. An environment that is too hostile will kill the plant, but an environment that is too friendly will make the plant into a plague. Does this also apply to humans? 

Within this program, we look for ways to enjoy these unwanted plants and their stories and recelebrate flora that is deemed unwanted.

Come celebrate with us!
