Host Kathy Sipple speaks with John Ervin of Primal Elegance about Synergistic Living Solutions.
In Northwest Indiana, there are over 70 invasive species of plants that threaten one or more things that we value. They impact our gardens, our farms, our woodlands, our ponds, our landscapes, and our comforts. Unlike the weeds with which we are most accustomed, like dandelions and thistles, these “super-weeds” not only dominate their habitat, but they alter it in ways that science is only now
beginning to understand.
Due to their growth habits and their abilities to disperse, the techniques required to control these species are nearly as diverse as the plants themselves. In his 25 years as an ecologist, arborist, entomologist, and nurseryman, John Ervin has accumulated control methods, and sensibilities regarding invasive species.
John will discuss a few of these species, their significance, and his recommendations for the landowner.
