A positive way to use those pesky invasive plants!

Heavy frost on the ground and zero degrees...not exactly gardening weather.  So stay inside and check out a couple of very interesting websites about The Urban Weaver Project and Urban Weaver Studio

Vancouver artists, Todd Devries and Sharon Kallis, collaborated with the Stanley Park Ecology Society and the Vancouver Park Board in an exploration of how invasive plants such as English ivy, Himalayan blackberry, and yellow flag iris  in the city can be used as urban substitutes for traditional weaving materials such as cedar and cat tails.
