Japanese knotweed harvest - Jiyoung Lee

With: Lynn Shore

Knotweed grows almost everywhere, is super easy to pick and you can do a lot with it! Foraging knotweed is very easy, but not everyone knows where to start or how to do it counciously. For our events during the Knotweed Season, Mediamatic will have to forage a lot of knotweed. You are welcome to join our foraging trips so you can learn how to do it safely and sustainably. 

You cal also learn about how to forage knotweed on our 'How to Forage Knotweed Safely' page.
