    I love the Invasivore idea on so many levels…

    Have you talked to the people at CENS who have created the What’s Invasive smartphone app?


    I can see an amazing collaboration – a user generated map of edible invasive species… perhaps info on property ownership, timing of phenology, and whether or not known herbicide spraying has occurred. Anyone can set up a ‘park’… I also have a few Japanese Knotweed and Phalaris sightings (and gathering more by the day) that I’d contribute from Vermont.

      Yes please an app would be great. Each state can start cataloging invasive species and locations like “Ways” people update areas where there is traffic. Every state should have a Inasivore restaurant and Ivasivor shop with goods made from non-edible invasive species to cover the non-edibles. This is the direction we need to head in for of nation and community problems creative ideas that create jobs, quality environmental considerate businesses, and not costing us more tax money to take care of. “In 2014, Arny Corp of Engineers released plan for keeping Asian Carp out of Great Lakes, price tag $18.4 BILLION.”
      How about we just give $$$$ start up for Inasivore restaurant in each state.

    There are much better methods for creating a map than google. Look into having someone create a map using the systems best for it. (Hint I can make such a map and it would have much more precise areas and I can make one for any species listed so it can be matched to the Species page.
