Invasivore: if you can't beat 'em, eat 'em
Recently featured in Heifer International magazine (see Heifer.org):
Invasivore: a website dedicated to eradicating invasive species by eating them.
Of course, the reality is more complicated than “if you can’t beat ‘em, eat ‘em!” and this blog will explore the many dimensions of this issue in ways we hope will surprise you- and your taste buds. Our organizing principle is the knowledge –courage even- to harvest, prepare and consume invasive species. It is this awareness we think will lead to decreasing the impacts of invasive species by preventing new introductions, reducing spread, and encouraging informed management policies.
Check out the website for recipes, maps, and links to more information about invasive species around the world.
