I'm tired of pulling up vinca and ivy, so I've been thinking.

What might get more people, a broader audience, interested in learning about invasives? Marketing is the answer! Maybe little teaser ads in the local throw away paper. Get people talking! The hyperlinks wouldn't be to DG, of course, and I'd like suggestions for better sites.

I've got a really nice iron on for a t-shirt for you to wear if you are interested. I think you will really like it and you could consider yourself part of the solution not the problem as I can assure you that wearing it will draw attention. Interested? D-Mail me. tee he.

I can't believe I missed this thread myself. You should have sent me a link.

In answer to your question, "What might get more people, a broader audience, interested in learning about invasives?" When they (invasive species) start hitting them harder in the pocketbook than they already are. People don't like shelling out hard earned money cleaning up other people's indiscretions.
