hello i am a culinary student at cocc and would like to know where i can get a list of "noxious weeds" and how they are erradicated. a lot of these are edible and i am trying to find out how to take them from invaded areas and contain them in a greenhouse for cultivation for food sources. any information you can send me i would be very greatful, or if there is someone in bend who is an expert i can talk to?
Hi, You can access a list of noxious weeds from the Oregon Dept. of Agriculture website. These are going to be truly designated noxious weeds as it relates to economic and environmental damage, not just weeds that are common. http://www.oregon.gov/ODA/PLANT/WEEDS/pages/statelist2.aspx
For a more local list you will want to contact Dan Sherwin the vegetation specialist for Deschutes County at 541-322-7135.
