I am a student in middle school working on our community garden. What weeds should we look out for in our school veggie garden? Do you have any resources to help me learn about weeds in central Oregon?

Hi, Unfortunately I am not familiar with a resource that is specific to weeds in central Oregon vegetable gardens. We have a large variety of weeds in this area.

Once a weed has been identified then we can suggest management for it. The Oregon Department of Agriculture has a list of weeds that are of greater concern however they are not necessarily ones that would invade a vegetable garden:
